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!!!

My 15 yr old son and I went early Feb with our local club (excellent trip) and everyone at Safari made us most welcome. Nothing was too much trouble, even with many divers in addition to us on the first day and a compressor fit out happening. Straight in the water from the shop what more can you want! Some... More

The dive centre is located right on the beach where the best dive sites are to be found - other dive centres on the island travel miles to enjoy what Safari has on its doorstep (and charge more for the experience). The centre has one room for staff and equipment and another for use of divers for storage and changing.... More

Thank you Paul for taking the time to write such an in depth report on our dive centre here in Lanzarote. Everywhere has it plus and minus side and our changing facility is quite small, but also better than changing in full view of the public at the back of a van - like our many competitors at the road...

The school is just opposite the beach , which makes it really easy to get changed and just go. The owner Steve is so nice and will accommodate for all your needs. We dived with Ana, excellent guide, the dive was awesome with her, we saw everything even a big grouper just in our nose. Really recommend the place and... More

Had more wonderful dives at Safari this month. Very friendly, helpful and professional staff, who feel more like family now. Dives don't cost anything extra on their wonderful boat the Astican. As it is right on Playa Chica beach, you have easy access to the sea. They will pick you and your gear up, from your holiday accommodation as well.... More

I had the pleasure of diving again with Safari in November. This dive center is now a second home to me and they no longer have 'staff' in my mind- they are 'life friends' which is as best I can put my association with these people. The more you go back the more you will apprieciate what I am trying... More

Great location, lovely people. Would definitely come back again. A great place to learn to dive, we completed our open waters here, seeing loads of fish, sea horses, star fish and angel shark to mention just a few. Great being able to sit and relax in between dives, with everything that you need right there.

A great place to learn to dive - very easy,straight off the beach. Loads to see in mere inches of water! Angel sharks, large grouper, seahorses, garfish, parrotfish, wrasse, octopus, spider crabs. I also did a wreck dive which was great. Small, classy beach, unobtrusive dive school with friendly, experienced staff (especially Joaquin!) good equipment and a positive attitude. A... More
