You can add to these packages with extra dives, excursions, night dives etc. If you want to do something special (such as dive just in the morning) then we can tailor a package for you.

Special Last Minute Offers We may be able to offer special low prices and discounts for pre-booked diving and courses if we still have availability. Use our Last Minute Discounts to find out how much you can save with Last Minute Special offers or early booking discounts.

The Abade Capitan is a rare colour variant of the normal Abade.

We accept payment in cash or cards from Visa, Mastercard, Switch/Maestro (but not American Express or Diners Cards). We have had problems processing 18-digit HSBC Maestro cards and cannot accept these. Note that the local banks charge us excessively to process travelers cheques (six percent!) so we advise our customers to change them first in their hotel or bank, which is usually commission free for the holder.

Want more details ?

It is very easy to tell us what diving you want to do while exploring the El Cabrón Marine Reserve with us, book your holiday, or learning to snorkel or scuba dive on a PADI course.

Our Price Promise

We believe that our prices are similar to most of the other professional diving schools in Gran Canaria, but depending on the package and the school we may appear to be a couple of Euro's more (or less!) expensive. We believe that our exceptional service, proximity to the reserve and great diving justify this. However if you dive with us and don't agree, then tell us (and why) and show us a competitive quotation for similar diving in the marine reserve and we will either refund the difference or charge you at the lower rate!
