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!!!

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.

Great people and very flexible. I did a few dives myself and also booked a Bubblemaker for my son, which he absolutely loved. My son's first language is Dutch so when I asked for the Dutch instructor they said it was no problem. The day of the Bubblemaker there was a red flag on the beach (meaning you are not... More

Thank you for your very nice review. We are pleased that you both enjoyed your time with Safari Diving. Here at Safari we adhere to the safety rules and will not enter the water when a red flag is showing. Our divers safety is much more important to us than money. :-) We are pleased that we managed to do... More

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

This was our second trip to Lanzarote and once more booked with Safari Diving. We were not to be disappointed and the guys were just as good as last year, very professional and capable but with a great sense of humour which made the diving experience all the better. Wendy and Steve organised our accommodation (Costa Volcan) which was right... 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

I visited safari diving again just before Xmas, the help before I arrived was excellent and the mini bus was waiting for me outside my hotel bang on time. Very helpful staff, very knowledgable and they made the diving great fun. I certainly be back.

Having just returned from my second trip with Safari Diving, I cannot praise them enough. Right from the first contact with Wendy via e-mail up to the last dive.
