The only legally operated dive centre in Lanzarote located directly on the beach in Puerto del Carmen - an unbeatable location here on the island for scuba diving! No long walks in full kit in the baking heat or kitting up at the back of van! We offer daily shore and boat diving (as we have our own hard boat ) and therefore can offer you the most dive sites - all at the same price - no extra charges for boat or night dives!!. Courses for the beginner and qualified divers too. Pleasure diving too, for the solo diver or groups (with discounted group rates!) - who can use their own instructors to teach or can dive unguided at times to suit you. English owned with a professional and friendly dive team. Open 7 days a week, every day of the year! We also have a couple of bars locally where our divers meet to relax, listen to music, play bingo (with cash prizes), have quiz nights, load their video/photos on our plasma screens and meet fellow divers. Family friendly safe holiday resort with lots to do for the non divers too. As all our sites are on our doorstep you are not gone long from any non divers in your family/group. We will not be beaten on like for like genuine quotes! Other make promises - we deliver!!!

Another great weeks diving with Safari Diving. All the team at the centre friendly, helpful and knowledgable and with your safety in mind at all times. Have dived with them since 2007 and been back several times and have never disappointed yet.

We've been diving with Safari a few times now, and each time just gets better. A superb team from start to finish. We book our apartment at Costa Volcan through the dive centre, which ensures we get a good room overlooking the pool. At the dive centre the staff are all extremely professional and friendly. The briefings are comprehensive and... More

I have now made 2 trips to Safari Diving and in both cases we had an excellent time . The dive center is perfectly placed on the beach and a very short 50M walk gets you underwater .

Nice diving and kind staff. Convenient shore and boat dives. Equipement is well maintained although the shop is a bit small and crowded most of the time. Had some relaxing divings although they could pay more attention to the open water divers (beginners) and how comfortable everyone is. One of the dive masters was a bit hasty and stressed which...
