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!!!

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...

Fabulous trip, and managed to get some good footage for my film (take a look https://youtu.be/d-Dr_ElMCdE )... I've been diving 24 years and these chaps certainly rank within the top few dive centers that i have dived with, for their professionalism and enthusiasm.

The great team at Safari Diving are always professional and friendly. Everyone is made to feel welcome, no matter what qualification level you are they provide great diving for all experiences. I have done over 50 dives with Safari now and have more booked for this year. Definitely recommend this great company.

As relatively newly qualified Open Water cert. holders, my husband and I selected Lanzarote and Safari for our first dives abroad, partly due to a recommendation from our dive school. We were not disappointed. After a slightly sticky start (due to our own limitations), manager, Adam Powers, helped us to enjoy a series of delightful dives. With great patience and... More

I dived with Safari in Janary 2015. I'd done my research before, talking to a few diving centres and got mixed feelings about diving in Lanzarote. Most diving centres seemed more tourist rather than divers oriented... if that makes sense ;) It's all about quick in and out in a rather regimented way. Safari guys were quite different, with much... More
