Best dive sites in Canary Islands

La Catedral – This site in Gran Canaria is considered one of the top dives in the region due to the unusual and impressive volcanic formations. Off the coast of La Isleta, just north of Las Palmas, is a morass of lava tubes, caves, arches and crevices. You’ll need a boat and local knowledge to enjoy the best dive on this site. The Arona - For shipwreck lovers, Las Palmas in Gran Canaria has a variety of wrecks; some say these are among the best in the world. The Arona is basically in one piece, lying on its side in 40 metres/130 feet of water. It’s well known for the schools of barracuda and other pelagics that patrol her hulk. La Restinga - There is a marine reserve on El Hierro where turtles, tuna and dolphins abound; even whale sharks put in an occasional appearance. As recently as 2011, an underwater volcano erupted here, and already marine life is moving back in. El Hierro is the smallest of the Canary Islands and is a bit remote – you have to fly to Tenerife and get a ferry – but the diving makes up for the effort. La Burrera - Just off the small island of La Graciosa to the north of Lanzarote lies this site highlighted by a dramatic underwater seascape including pinnacles, columns and large rocky ledges. Marine life is protected here and thrives. Cuevo Del Palm Mar – Located ten minutes from Los Cristianos and Las Galletas in Tenerife, is a thrill for advanced and deep divers. Crystal clear water gives incredible visibility to view large rocks, a cave, lobsters, Atlantic barracudas and several species of moray eels. Though gentle and inquisitive, some of these toothy eels are quite ferocious looking.

What to see

From octopi to timid rays, you will see an exceptional amount of marine life during your vacation on the Canary Islands. Some of the eels here are out of this world, boasting vibrant colors and patterns. Some of the most impressive marine life, however, is the best camouflaged, look closely at the rocks and reefs to spot some pretty spectacular creatures.

Sea turtles are also popular, here, so come to check them out as they feed on grasses or rest in the shallows.

Description

Calypso Dive Center is the only 5* PADI dive center in the area of Maspalomas and operates on fish-rich sites like the El Cabron Marine Reserve.

Calypso Dive Center has been in Maspalomas in the south of the island since 1996. You'll find the dive center at the frontside of the Hotel Dunas Mirador Maspalomas Sonnenland, where they offer a wide range of PADI courses and dive sites ranging from beginner Marine Reserves, abundant in marine life to deep shipwrecks for the more advances.

The ocean in the Canary Islands is heated by the gulf stream in the Atlantic, which prevents the water from falling below 18ºC during the winter. The volcanic rock has been eroded in many of the dive sites to create spectacular underwater arches, passageways and arches, sculpted by the waves when sea levels were lowest during the last ice age. In short, it's a magical place to dive.
