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!!!

First time diving abroad after passing my PADI open water. They had all this info written down when I arrived and made me feel slightly less nervous. The first dive was so good I did 2 more and I'm going back to dive with them again at end of November!

There are many diving centres to choose from in Lanzarote however Safari diving was always going to my first choice as it is situated on the beautiful Playa Chica beach which is my favourite place to visit when I holiday here.

Hi Nicola, Thank you for your lovely report. Really pleased you enjoyed your try dive. As you mentioned the scuba equipment is heavy out of the water and so our location is perfect for this as it only a few steps into the water and then the equipment becomes weightless. We are so fortunate with our location - simply the... More

We booked in advance online which was very easy. We were picked up from our hotel by their dedicated bus which was included in the price. Once we arrived we were given an induction by helpful and knowledgeable staff, Ben and Deborah. Our first dive was to 6 metres and our second to 12 metres. The sea life around the... More

We both decided to complete our open water diving qualification with Safari diving and the whole experience was fantastic from start to finish. Safari diving we found to be professionally run with a very friendly team Our special thanks go to Jordy whose teaching we feel went over and above the course requirements.
