Owner description: Lanzarote Dive Centre is the No1 choice for both new and experienced divers, we are fully legal, located on Avda de Las Playas, on the second floor below the mini golf. We conduct daily diving trips to Playa Chica, the harbour wrecks, and Mala to the north of the island and The Museo Atlántico in the south. We have our own access to the beach which offers safe and secure access to the sea. We are constantly being amazed by what we discover from sprats and bream to the amazing stingray and Angel Sharks. Whether you are coming to discover the underwater world for the first time, coming as an experienced diver, or wanting to bring the whole family for a snorkel tour, Lanzarote Dive Centre can provide you with the professional, safe, fun experience that you are looking for.

We were here in the middle of April, and tried scuba diving. Everything was just perfect and we have got unforgettable memories. Thank you so much Scott and Jackie. You were amazing :)

Had a couple of dives in February with Lanzarote Dive Centre,dive guide Scott was excellent ,front of house Jackie very helpful -offering to arrange pick up at accomodation nothing was to much trouble.Hired equipment no fault there ,all in good nick! Coffee and biscuits at half time,its not the biggest dive centre but in my 20years of diving+visiting Lanzarote it certainly is the best.

I have just returned from lanzarote and found the Lanzarote Dive Centre / RC. All I can say is that it was a brilliant find. The Dive guide (scott) was very good and found things such as sea-horses, rabbit fish, black coral species (only usually found in deep water), sun-fish, large groupers, angel sharks, morays, and a 2metre wingspan stingray etc., the list was endless.
His wife Jackie was lovely and like a mother hen, she made sure that all the kit fitted correctly and was comfy. They were both very patient and nothing was too much . Coffee, biscuits and croissants were all available between dives.
I will definitely return. Many thanks to both of them.

We are a group of 10 x divers who have just returned from Lanzarote. We visited Lanzarote Dive Centre and were very impressed with Jackie, she outlined perfectly what our group could expect and put us a 3 or a 5 dive package together that would suit every diver in our group. We meet at the centre at 9 am every morning and were greeted with a tea or a coffee....sorted out equipment (hire equipment was in excellent condition) after that we were taken in the mini bus for a short ride to our dive site. Before we kitted up Scott would give us a dive brief, then into the water...Scott is the best guide I've ever been in the water with and i've logged 355 dives, he swam slowly and found/showed us such interesting marine life, some of which I'd never seen before i.e. seahorses and sea rabbits? after the dive whilst having a surface interval Scott & his divemasters would provide Tea/Coffe biscuits etc. then a 2nd dive. The week went so quickly but we will all be back!
Well done to all concerned....you made our diving experience interesting happy.....

As newly qualified divers I was keen to get a dive in with my daughter during a busy half term holiday trip to Lanzarote, but we were travelling with her friend who had never dived before. In our communications with Lanzarote Dive Centre prior to arrival Jackie and Scott couldn't have been more helpful in promptly and efficiently responding, and in putting together a perfect Try Dive / guided dive package (as well as helping with sorting out the necessary paperwork in advance).

We mostly used the LDC equipment which was all top gear (my daughter had a brand new Mares 7mm wetsuit) and we felt completely comfortable in their care (when I got a bit of foot cramp the ‘shadowing’ intern was instantly there to assist my fin-stretch); it is a credit to their friendly professionalism that I barely had to worry about the two 14 year olds, and could enjoy the dive so much.

We'll let the pictures do the talking, but a very big thank you to everyone at Lanzarote Dive Centre (incl. Luis for keeping my wife safe) for a really great day! We simply wouldn't consider diving with anyone else in Lanzarote, and would recommend you try out this team (take a look at their website to give you a better idea of the qualifications of the staff, and then add the fact that, in our opinion, you will not meet a more customer-focused business).
