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 can recommend these guys, and girls, very highly for their professionally run centre. All dive briefings were detailed with Deborah taking extra time to check that all nationalities on the dive fully understood. All dives that I undertook were within my limits (PADI AOW) and special notes were given that if you were only PADI OW, you could not... More

Hi there, Thank you for your lovely report here on trip advisor, we appreciate it. Just one thing our diving insurance qualifies divers to their qualified limits up to a limit of 40 metres which is the dive limit for diving laws here. Obviously yours would be to 30 metres as that is your qualification level. We do hope that... More

Really arrogant instructor/dive guide. Got separated from buddy (who was his student and more of his buddy than mine) on a night dive. He didn't ask me if I was ok or what happened, I even apologised as I didn't wander off but thought that they had gone ahead but he just continued to humiliate me in front of the... More
