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!!!

Pros - Incredibly helpful with organising all the logistics. Wendy was very responsive to all my emails with... More

My husband and I just returned from a week in Lanzarote, diving with Safari. The location is perfect, literally meters from the beach. The dive guides were all brilliant, extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We are returning in October for another week of diving with Safari.

It is very kind of you to write on Trip Advisor, thank you for the lovely review. We find that a lot of divers, once have dived here, return time after time. Divers don't know how good the diving is here until they try. Really pleased you enjoyed it and we look forward to seeing you again in October. Best... More

Our sub-aqua club have made coming here an annual trip. All the staff are good fun and make the diving stress free. Its usually the first foreign trip for our new trainees and it couldn't be more perfect for them. Loads of dives in warm water full of life.

Lovely dive centre with lovely people. Been back here 4 times over the last 2 years and they always greet everyone with a smile! Great dives with lots to see, seahorses, sting rays, lots of angel sharks, parrot fish etc. Visibility is usually always good. Also is situated a very beautiful beach!

Dive centres the world over have a vibe about them, and Safari Divers certainly hold this to be true - and then some. There is a relaxed, warmly friendly attitude, as though it's a private club and you have always been a valued member. Many of the dives are directly from the beach upon which the shop stands. This makes... More
