Dive into a new world: explore the depths of the ocean around Lanzarote with this Discover Scuba Diving Experience and swim alongside incredible marine life.
Discover Scuba Diving: what to expect?
Discover Scuba Diving is a special course designed for those who have never had the magical experience of floating and breathing underwater! If you've dreamt of diving to the depths of the ocean and want a taste of life at the bottom of the sea, this is the activity for you!
Doing a "diving baptism", as this beginner's course is often known, is the ideal way to experience this unique sport and to enjoy the beauty of the underwater world in a new way.
Scuba Dive Options
When making your reservation, you'll have the choice between two different options, so you can tailor your first Scuba diving experience to your needs and preferences. Each dive lasts approximately 40 minutes.
If you're a little apprehensive as to whether Scuba diving is for you, doing one dive is a good way to get a taste for the activity.
After a brief introduction to the theory of Scuba diving, learning how to use the equipment and the basic techniques you'll need to use, you'll be taken to El Jablillo Beach. There, you'll enter the water and begin to breathe using your equipment.
Begin your 40 minute dive in an artificial bay, where you'll enjoy the wealth of sealife found beneath the tranquil waters. You'll have the opportunity to see golden-striped dreamfish, vibrantly colourful ornate wrasse, spider crabs and even squid! You won't dive deeper than 4 metres (13 feet) on this taster dive.
At the end of your dive, you'll return to El Jablillo Beach, before being dropped back off at your hotel around 5 pm.
If one dive isn't enough for you, and you'd like your first experience of Scuba Diving to be a little more immersive, this is the option for you. You'll be taken to Playa Chica, an ideal beach to carry out this activity, where visibility is excellent all year round.
Begin your day with a short lesson in the theory of using the Scuba equipment and how to communicate with the guide underwater. You'll put all of this into practice during your two dives. On the first, you'll dive to a maximum of 6 metres (20 feet), allowing you to get accustomed to the depths. Your second dive will go to a maximum of 12 metres (40 feet).
Make sure to keep your eyes open throughout your two dives, as you won't want to miss the enormous shoals of sardines, tuna, dreamfish and many other species of fish. What's more, if you're lucky, you may catch a glimpse of an angelshark or manta rays!
Your experience will end at Playa Chica, and you'll be taken back to your hotel around 2 pm.
After doing this activity, you must wait at least 24 hours before travelling by aeroplane.
