About Davy Jones Diving
They are based in Arinaga, as this is where most of the best dive sites in Gran Canaria can be found. They are based in Casa Limon, a spacious, relaxed property with a large garden where you can relax as you prepare your kit, and relax in style between and after your dives. The underwater landscape in Arinaga is dramatic and varied and is rated as one of the best places to dive in the Canaries because of the variety and volume of marine life you can encounter. You can swim through arches, explore caves, or seek out creatures such as angel sharks, rays, morays, barracudas, sea-horses and much more. The waters are sub-tropical which means that many of the fish are brightly coloured, and diving takes place all year round. This PADI 5-star Dive centre won the PADI Outstanding Achievement award in 2018, and the shallower dives sites are excellent for PADI Training courses from snorkeling, through discover dives (try-dives) up to PADI Open Water and PADI Advanced Open Water Courses.

My visit to Grab Canaria was very last minute and I only discovered I had a day to explore just before leaving. Brian was great in responding to my messages whilst I was traveling and arranged to collect me from my hotel for a great days diving. I would highly recommend.

Had booked in advance but no deposit was required due to the ever changing rules on COVID/lockdown. Brian was very helpful and arranged collection from our hotel about 12 miles away. Completed a couple of local beach dives in the marine reserve a short distance from the dive centre which has a small relaxing garden and provided a base for my girlfriend whilst we were out. Caution with the plastic chairs!

Davy Jones Diving is definitely the best choice if you are looking for awesome dives in the el cabron nature reserve with a professional and friendly team. I felt very safe during my immersions. Brian and Brett are great underwater and will surely help you with all you need. I highly recommend this dive shop for everyone who is looking for dives in this area.

Hello Hyeunji ! I am glad you enjoyed the diving here with us, you were lucky to see so many rays and of course we had an excellent night dive! El Cabrón is a great area to dive in with lots of different dive routes and I am glad we could show some to you. Best wishes Brian

After 5 months of Working from home when normally I travelled extensively for work, my mental health needed a boost. I chose to go to Davy Jones because experience told me they would deliver. I learnt to dive here 9 years ago and the staff (many of whom are the same), cannot do enough for their guests. They collect from resorts or if like me you only want to dive, they arrange local accommodation. Their premises include a beautiful outdoor courtyard so social distancing was easy, and the diving as always was superb. The diving is on a marine reserve and it certainly deserves the recognition, every dive delivers

After 5 months with very few customers it has been a delight for us to welcome you and other guests back to the centre. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us again, and as you say, with our large private garden and courtyard we can implement a series of strong but not oppressive COVID protocols. We did well on the dives seeing many unusual creatures, lots of octopus, cuttlefish, morays and bream, and specials such as the Thor Shrimps, Slipper Lobster, Butterfly Ray, the Whelks eggs, and of course the Hairy Blenny, right at the end of the last dive. And when travel restrictions ease then of course we will be delighted to see you again! Brian

Hi, I am glad you both enjoyed your first dive in the ocean! Yes, as you say the Playa del cabrón is such an amazing place with damselfish., parrotfish, painted combers, pufferfish, glasseyes, jurel and many other colourful fish. Don't wait too long before you try again and you will be surprised how much more you see! Brian
