The only legally operated dive centre in Lanzarote located directly on the beach in Puerto del Carmen - an unbeatable location here on the island for scuba diving! No long walks in full kit in the baking heat or kitting up at the back of van!

We offer daily shore and boat diving (as we have our own hard boat ) and therefore can offer you the most dive sites - all at the same price - no extra charges for boat or night dives!!. Courses for the beginner and qualified divers too. Pleasure diving too, for the solo diver or groups (with discounted group rates!) - who can use their own instructors to teach or can dive unguided at times to suit you. English owned with a professional and friendly dive team.

Open 7 days a week, every day of the year!

We also have a couple of bars locally where our divers meet to relax, listen to music, play bingo (with cash prizes), have quiz nights, load their video/photos on our plasma screens and meet fellow divers.

Family friendly safe holiday resort with lots to do for the non divers too. As all our sites are on our doorstep you are not gone long from any non divers in your family/group.

We will not be beaten on like for like genuine quotes!

Other make promises - we deliver!!!

We were over at xmas. Arrived xmas eve leaving new years eve. Unfortunately we never got one dive in. We agreed with the way safari dealt with the situation by not allowing divers to go in. ( i agree with Chris 1252). Safari have fully refunded us. We have dived with Adam and the gang numerous times over the years... More

We were very unlucky to arrive during an almost unprecedented run of 7 (at least) consecutive days of windy weather which resulted in more wave activity than is normal. It wasn't Safari's fault but it did mean that we got just one dive in out of the 8 we had booked. It wasn't that the sea state was dangerous, it... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your views on trip advisor, however we should like to respond to these views. Firstly yes 7 days in a row of these winds was most unusual for here, in the 11 and half years we have been here and further 14 diving here we have never experienced this. So that was... More

Although the centre is a bit snug, there is nothing small about the welcome and service you get from this ideally sited dive centre. Wendy works tirelessly behind the scenes ensuring that everything is to your satisfaction, even taking care of finding accommodation. The staff at the centre are knowledgeable and very professional. Although space is tight and the centre... More

Thank you for your lovely review. I am glad you mentioned about other dive centres entering the water under these red flag conditions - including try divers - as we put diver safety above finance as should everybody!! We just received a 3 star from a diver on this site for not offering dives under these conditions!! As you know... More

If you want a very relaxed dive with a a guide that is still very excited about what they see, then Deborah is your girl, so much passion it's infectious and watching her teach is insightful and gives you a clue...

Thank you for taking the time to review us on trip advisor and we appreciate your review. Very pleased you mentioned we have a good safety policy of which we are proud, probably one of reasons we were approved by the M.O.D. as one of only 10 dive centres worldwide for training their servicemen and women. We hope you return... More

Couldn't get any closer to the water only steps away and you're diving. Easy access off the beach for a deep dive and nice shallow dives. If you are a beginner or experienced you will see beautiful sea creatures right away (like Sea horses and Angel Sharks)
