La Catedral is a rocky shelf with arches, vaults and caves, where you’ll find a 20-metre-high cave inside. This imposing volcano body, reminiscent of the interior of a cathedral, is located just five minutes by boat from Puerto de la Cruz in the north of the island of Tenerife. Dives are adaptable to all levels and start with a 20-metre descent and an exploration of the intricate topography of the area, reaching depths of 45 metres.

The divers' experience and the movements of the currents in the area will dictate the best course to follow. During the descent to the shelf, terraces covered with gardens of coral appear. The structure is breath-taking inside as impressive light beams fall from holes above. Marine photographers will enjoy seeing species adapted to darkness like glass fish and lobsters. The more adventurous will want to pet the moray eels, which are very used to divers.
