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.
