Scuba diving among wrecks and reefs in Lanzarote

In the southeast of Lanzarote, next to the mouth of the precipice of El Quíquere and very near Puerto del Carmen, is a diving spot where we find three wrecks for our enjoyment– wooden boats used in their day as fishing vessels - as well as reefs that have formed around them. The wreck nearest the surface is at a depth of between 20 and 28 metres and is, like the second wreck in good condition.

Diving to a sunken boat full of life

The boat which is furthest down (about 30 metres) has lost part of its structure giving it a ghostly appearance in the turquoise waters. It is also the one with most life given that many species typical of Lanzarote are to be found like stingray, angel shark and rays. To get to the wreck at el Quíquere easily, it is best to access it by boat and remember it is a spot for divers with experience.
