Diving sites

Descent into paradise

The Canary Islands are a real paradise for diving. This can be seen in the number of schools and dive sites all over the islands. The Canary waters are known internationally for their quality: the fact that they are crystal clear down as far as 30 metres and that the temperature of the water is always about 20ºC, providing a habitat for all kinds of species. The sea bed is home to a biodiversity of great value characterised by the volcanic relief full of caves, niches and reefs and of a depth which sometimes reaches a thousand metres. This wealth has awarded different parts of El Hierro, La Palma and Lanzarote the category of Marine Reserve.
