The Dive Shop Lanzarote

British and Irish Canadian owned and operated!

Sean originally from BC Canada started his career in the cold lakes off Vancouver in 2003 and Donna from the North of England who moved to Turkey in 1999 as first an overseas holiday rep who fell in love with the underwater world.  Meeting Sean in The British Virgin Island in 2004.  Both with a passion for diving and travel. Starting out in land based operations throughout Europe, The Caribbean and Asia, to Liveaboard operations and cruise ship.  After the arrival of Casey (our daughter) in 2011 it was time to settle down and live our dream.  We chose Lanzarote the island of eternal spring.  Moving here in March 2014 we decided to purchase the shop after falling in love with the island.  This was the best decision we have ever made.  Lanzarote is now our home and we are all very settled here.  This island truly is the Caribbean of Europe.
