Davy Jones Diving are the closest dive centre to the El Cabrn Marine Reserve, in the centre of Arinaga. Their instructors dive there every day so know all the little secrets and special sites to make every dive special. They also run PADI and BSAC courses in small groups, so you can learn to dive in a huge natural aquarium with all the colourful fish such as wrasse and parrotfish and damselfish around you . The centre is about 20 minutes from the main tourist hotels in the South of the Island and they offer a free minibus service to bring you to the reserve.

They are located in the centre of Arinaga, so that they can dive in all the parts of the Marine Reserve at El Cabrón. It only take a few minutes to get from the centre to the dive sites so they dive in the sub-tropical waters there most days of the year. After each dive they return to the dive centre where you can chill out between dives and use the toilet, grab a cup of tea or coffee or plan your next dive in comfort.

There are over ten different dive routes in the marine reserve, including easy 'chill dives' at 8-14m with lots of marine life; good recreational dives at around 18-20m which suit all Open Water or 1-star divers; and more challenging explorations for more qualified divers including a dive down to 30m to see the local gorgonia. Some of the routes are only known or dived on a regular basis by their instructors, so they can show you lots of little highlights that other schools are unaware of. With this diversity they vary the dive routes, and adjust the plans to suit the experience levels and weather conditions on a daily basis.

If you are looking for somewhere to take a diving course, then the El Cabrón Reserve is an excellent choice, as there are a lot of different areas which suit different stages or parts of training. You always get to see lots of different marine life, even on introductory dives. They keep class sizes and ratios small so that everyone gets individual attention from their highly qualified instructors.
