Ocean Adventures

Where we go

Diving and Snorkelling on La Palma is generally conducted from the shore and most of the dive sites can be reached by car within 45 minutes from Los Cancajos where we are based.   This gives us many options to choose from depending on the weather and water conditions.  Our dive sites are suitable for all experience levels with protected bays and easy entries or exits for snorkellers.

Dives are generally conducted between 10 - 30m depth and can be done from the same location for all levels of experience, though some of the more challenging dives such as "El Torre de Malpique" is reserved only for the more experienced divers.   Malpique is also home to the famous site named "Las Cruces" which can be done by most certified divers.

What you can see

Visibility averages about 20m and the volcanic nature of the island has created beautiful formations such as the arches of La Bombilla or the spectacular cavern of La Catedral.   Combined with the nutrient rich water of the Atlantic,  they create a perfect environment where fish species such as rays, moray eels, trumpet fish, groupers and bream can thrive.   Predators and gamefish such as barracuda, jacks and tuna can often be seen within meters of the coast due to the sharp incline as the island rises from the ocean floor.

When we go

Like the rest of the Canaries, diving on La Palma can be done throughout most of the year with average water temperatures ranging from a mild 19 deg C in winter to a warm 25 deg C in summer.   We have two scheduled dives per day from Tuesdays to Saturdays during daytime .   Depending on conditions and demand, we also offer night dives.

For day dives, we meet 9:00 at the dive centre for paperwork and registration - once everyone is ready, we leave for the dive site.   Times for night dives depend on sunset and will be decided on the day of the dive.

Dive times for courses vary slightly based on the course and weather conditions.   Your instructor will arrange these with you on a daily basis during the duration of the course.
