Why is this dive site special?

La Catedral is a dive site for the more experienced diver who is looking for a deeper dive. The conditions can be more challenging for some as the choppy sea in the north and the small rib can create sea sickness and make gearing up potentially challenging.

Just at the limit for the maximum depth for recreational divers if you are looking to go deeper then this is the perfect dive site for you.

Located approximately forty minutes away from our base in Playa del Ingles, it is well worth the journey!
