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!!!

Just come back from my second weeks diving in Puerto del Carmen. Anyone who dives with Safari will know why we went back! Extremely helpful staff with a great knowledge of the area. Several boats going out each day means you get to see a huge amount of the diving in the area. Can't wait to go back!

All of the staff at Safari diving were a massive help and very personable. They were able to provide advice and support with diving in the local area and had top notch equipment to rent. They managed a group of 36 of us without a hitch and looked after all the other customers surrounding us at the same time. I'd... More

I have used 3 dive companies over the years while on holidays in Lanzarote and i have to say Safari outshine them all. The Dive shop is located on Playa Chica beach so the dive sites are all on their doorstep. Its a family run business and all the staff are keen divers. There is a cool calm atmosphere about... More

For certain the best thing was the staff, when we wanted a boat dive we got one, when we wanted a night dive no problem, the flexibility... More

Turns out, while my hubby and I are enthusiastic divers and love the sport, once again we have determined that cold water diving is not for us. We had signed up to dive 6 dives each but once there we only did 2 each as we just couldn't stand the cold water, even with full wet suit gear. But the... More

Thank you for taking the time to write on Trip advisor about your experience here at Safari Diving Lanzarote. It is a shame that you felt the water temperatures were cold, our UK divers usually appreciate 19-20 degrees water temperature at this time of year whilst the water temperatures in the UK are much colder.Although I appreciate a lot of...

Spent a week in Lanzarote and managed to squeeze in some diving with safari; excellent location literally on the beach, did three shore dives which worked out perfectly as we have two young children and didn't want to leave them with the grandparents for any longer than needed. Unfortunately there was stormy weather for a couple of days of the... More

Safari are a really friendly, well-equipped dive school. They're very accomodating for newbies - and the location is great if you're learning, as you can just walk into the water from the beach! We had three or four dives with Safari, all different. My mum completed a qualification and the instructors took their time answering her questions. IHighly recommended.
