The clear waters and undersea life off Lanzarote make it an ideal place to try scuba diving. This experience makes it easy to give the sport a go, and discover whether it’s for you without committing yourself to a longer course. After a briefing on scuba essentials and training in shallow waters, enjoy a dive off Playa Chica bay to experience its underwater world. A PADI instructor will accompany you throughout on this small-group experience.
What to Expect
Following convenient pickup from your Lanzarote hotel in an air conditioned minivan, travel to the dive centre in Puerto Del Carmen for your scuba dive. You will be in a small group with a maximum of just 6 people.

When you arrive at the dive center, you will complete some paperwork checking that you are fit and healthy. You will then have a dive briefing explaining scuba diving and the dive you are about to go on. Then, find a wet suit, mask and fins that fit you. The dive is from Playa Chica Bay 150m (about 500ft) from the dive center. Your instructor will help you put the equipment on by the beach, then walk into the sea. Practice breathing and find fish surrounding your feet. When you are ready, it's time to descend under the crystal clear water for the dive. Explore the underwater world of Lanzarote. Along the way, stop off to see the different varieties of tropical fish. It really is an experience that you will never forget. The dive is around 30-35 minutes long, and you go to a maximum depth of 6m (about 20ft).

After you have finished the dive, return to the dive center to remove the wet suit, have a shower and a drink before one of the team members takes you back to your hotel.

Excellent experience

My two teenagers are still buzzing about this. Great experience all round, friendly staff and their diving instructor Ariel was absolutely brilliant with them. Communication when booking online was also great.
