Why is this dive site special?
What is the dive like in Tufia?
Once you enter the water of Tufia you will be immediately greeted with shoals of Parrot Fish and Wrasse. A gradual descent along the volcanic rock formation brings us down to a cavern situated at 15 meters where you often find an Eagle ray sleeping! Depending on comfort and experience level it is possible to enter the cavern and swim through the cavern to the top reef.
Depending on air consumption and certification level you can swim to the right down to twenty-two meters to discover the sandy bottom composition and search for Sting-rays and Angel sharks that are common in Gran Canaria.
What marine life will I see in Tufia?

Little more than a collection of white seaside houses overlooking the ocean it is the most charming place for a surface interval.
