Our diving centre is in Arinaga, right next to the Marine
Reserve, which means that you can experience this fabulous

of leaving our dive school. And because we dive here all the time
our experts know how to make
your day with us special, and show you some of the wonderful
sights on any dive. It's great fun to dive in these subtropical
waters, and we want to make sure you get more from your
exploration of the reserve. And with our diving centre

'Outstanding' PADI 5* Dive Centre
Casa Limon, our PADI dive centre in Arinaga has some of the best facilities and probably the best ambiance in the Canaries. The large garden is relaxed and friendly, and there is a choice of shady corners or a sun-deck to chill out in between the dives, while connecting with friends on the free wifi. Nearby, in the centre of the reserve, the Playa del Cabrón is a great place to learn to dive with one of our highly rated instructors, on a PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver course, because it is sheltered and safe, yet has a prolific and colourful marine life. You can also take part in a more advanced course in the deeper waters, where some of the more unusual creatures are found, or take a snorkelling course or your first dive underwater on a PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience or 'try-dive'. So if you want a centre for PADI diving in the Canaries make sure you check our range of courses and see why we were awarded the PADI Europe Outstanding Achievement Award in 2018.

All the Best Dive Sites
Our experts will help you explore the stunning subaqua scenery of
the marine park with it's caves, arches, swim-throughs and walls,
and we might show you schools of barracuda, a giant fish ball,
the sedate glide of a sting-ray or angelshark, the unique beauty
of a seahorse or a cuttlefish effortlessly changing colour. Every
guided dive in the El Cabrón Marine
Reserve will enhance your understanding of the complex
ecosystems in marine environments.
We also organise excursions to all the other major diving locations in Gran Canaria, such as Sardina del Norte, The wrecks of Las Palmas or Mogan, and can arrange deep dives, wreck dives, night dives and special dives for underwater photographers. However many of our divers tell us that this site is one of the best for Canary Islands diving due to the unique combination of dramatic scenery, quantity of marine life and huge diversity of species.
A complete diving service
To help you get the best out of your visit to go diving in Gran Canaria, we aim to give a complete service which includes:

In the present economic conditions you don't waste your hard earned diving money by not getting to see the best places to dive on the island, or using the best facilities. Why put up with sites with uninteresting seascape and only meagre fish life (such as in the South West of Gran Canaria) when you can dive in the Marine Reserve? And don't put up with second-rate on-shore facilities. If you browse through the photo gallery, or look at the dive sites, you will get a good feel for the marine life and variety here.
So get in contact with us now, by email, fax or phone, and our experts will arrange your exploration plan in one of Europe's top diving locations. Remember that we operate a free collection service! If you are anywhere in Maspalomas, Playa del Ingles, Sonnenland, San Agustin, San Fernando, El Tablero, Bahia Feliz, Vecindario, Agüimes, and Meloneras, then it takes an average transfer time of about 25 minutes. If you want to come diving from Las Palmas, Puerto Rico, Taurito, Anfi del Mar, Patalavaca, Arguineguin then we can still collect you, free of charge, and it will only take about 45 minutes.
