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!!!

We dived at Playa Chica beach with Safari Diving in September 2016. The diving is frankly spectacular. We saw sea horses, octopus, angel shark, scorpion fish and spider shrimp (among many others). The water temp was a cool 22C but it was do-able for an hour with a 5mm wetsuit. The staff at Safari are excellent. Always friendly and informative... More

Thank you for your lovely review. We are pleased you enjoy your diving with us. Unfortunatelyy our centre is on the small side but our location is unbeatable being directly on the shore for the shore dives and right next door to the jetty for the boat dives.

Safari came recommended by a friend, so I joined him this summer. I found the set up to be good. It is right on the beach (unlike several other operators). The changing area can be tight when it gets busy, but this is more than compensated by the rest of the operation. The staff are multinational and all easy going... More

I'd thoroughly recommend Safari Diving. Brilliant location, right on the beach at Playa Chica. I had four dives (2 shore and 2 boat) the dive leaders weer professional and knowledgeable throughout. The briefings were clear and concise and dives really enjoyable with plenty to see. Special thanks to Mark, Danny and Tana. Hopefully we'll get back to Lanzarote again soon.

I have dived a few times average the last few years in Lanzarote and again am delighted that I've always dived with Safari. Having not dived in two years the guys advised that the first dive would be to 12m , personally I don't care if it was only 2m once I'm under the water. We had an extremely helpful... More

I cant recommend Safari Diving enough! My husband and I used them a lot last year and again this year during our 3 week holiday.
