Earning your PADI certification will allow you to dive around the world for reduced prices. If you are an open water scuba diver or above you can even rent or buy your own equipment and just go diving with your certified buddy!

At Leagues Ahead Diving all courses are taught in small and personal groups allowing you to master the skills in your own time.

WHAT DIVE SITE DO WE RECOMMEND TO EXPERIENCED DIVERS?

One of the dive sites that we recommend is El Cabron. Voted one of the top ten dive sites in Europe, the dive site El Cabron is an obligatory stop for all divers traveling to Gran Canaria. One of only three marine reserves in the Canary Islands it is home to a rich diversity of marine life including four hundred varieties of Flora and Fauna. Because of its marine reserve status, boat traffic nor commercial fishing are allowed in the area, allowing marine life to thrive.

The Arco Chico, Los Roncadores and Punta de la Sal are three of the ten dive routes available to dive at El Cabrón, with each different route catering for varying certification level. Every dive offers something different from caverns, swim-throughs, arches, and caves!
