Dive Sites of Lanzarote

Dive Locations

Scroll down to discover a small selection of the most popular sites we have for you to discover under the crystal clear waters of the beautiful island of Lanzarote.

The Dive Sites of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands of Spain are varied.

We offer shore diving at Playa Chica, and Boat Dives daily.  Dives from Playa Chica are very comfortable and open to all levels of divers.  Beginner dives are conducted right from the beach in a nice secluded bay.  This shallow dive is perfect for snorkelling.  The Harbour wall a nice 8-18m or for the more experienced the Playa Chica cliff hides many nooks and crannies worth visiting.  Depths here go past the 42m recommended depths for recreational scuba divers.  The uniqueness and richness of the caves along Puerto Del Carmen cliff are so great that Europe has declared it a “special Conservation Site”.

 

Boat diving is also available daily.   Diving from our small catamaran on board Katfish cruises.  Daily departures, fully inclusive, hot meal and drinks served on board.  Non divers welcome to tag along and enjoy the 3 hour all inclusive cruise.

Open Water Dives

The Cathedral
The Dive Shop Lanzarote - Island Excursions - Bike Rental Sponges and corals

Formed during the volcanic eruptions this large cavern is encrusted with soft corals on the walls and ceiling. The depth at the entrance reaches over 30m but then slopes gently up to the back of the cavern revealing a shimmering image as fresh water meets salt forming a halocline at the rear of the cavern. Things to see are Large Grouper, Moray eels and Rays.

On the return journey above the Cathedral you can swim through the bubble fields, created by your exhaled air trapped against the roof of the cavern. This air then filters up through the sand and on towards the surface.

The Blue Hole

As you can see from the photograph, the view from below gives the dive site its name.

The top of the hole is at approx 25m and drops to about 35m. A torch is recommended to get the most from this dive.

Things to see are Great Barracuda, Large Grouper, Angel shark and Sting Rays.
