Scuba Diving In Lanzarote

Amazing, fantastic, awesome, spectacular, magical, OMG !!! There really is that much you can experience when diving Lanzarote. Island Watersports will take you to the best dive sites on the island, which includes some of the best known dive sites such as The Cathedral, The Blue Hole and the Harbour Wrecks along with lesser known dive sites such as Las Coloradas and let's not forget the unique underwater museum. Steeped in mystery, sub-tropical island culture and meaning, this dive boat excursion is a must for every diver. You can race with the children of Lanzarote, cross the Rubicon, meet the faceless selfies and even see your own reflection underwater. If you have a camera be sure to take a mirror selfie, to mimic the face selfies.

The marine life is varied and abundant inhabiting the reefs, wrecks, caverns and volcanic topography.

There really is something for everyone from beginners to tec.

Find yourself marveling over glowing cuttle fish in the shallows of the house reef or diving face to face with a curious giant Grouper or find yourself exhilarated when encircled by Jacks on the top of the reef.

Who knows what you'll experience!



Here's a few photos of the marine life and the divers who love to go diving with them.

  • dive with the pelagics: shoals of sardines, tuna, barracuda, rays and sharks
  • discover the little critters: nudibrachs, flat worms and hermit crabs
  • encounter the endangered: seahorses and Angel Sharks
  • uncover the unusual: slippper lobsters, trumpet fish and sun fish
  • enjoy the antics of the parrot, damsel and lizard fish, the blennies, flounders, breem and much more!
  • and be amazed at the corals at 25-30m; usually found much deeper!

The big question will be wide angle, macro or a lense somewhere inbetween. Never a problem for those that just like to point and shoot. Want to know more about photography and videography, then why not check out our photography courses and workshops.

We have a wide range of courses available including favourites such as Advanced Adventure Diver, Nitrox and Deep as well as Cavern and Solo Diver and a full range of TDI Technical courses from Intro to Tec through to Advanced Trimix Diver and CCR courses too.

For those of you eager to learn to dive the Open Water Course is designed just for you. Never tried scuba diving before and just want a try dive first to see how you get on then you'll be interested in a try dive, or perhaps the Basic Diver Course.

There is a new team line up with some old favourites too! Valerie and Paul, from BSAC Lanzarote, have teamed up with Island Watersports' Iain and Marie. Georg is retiring but you can't keep an old seadog down so expect to see him popping down to the dive centre when he's on the island.

Island Watersports has teamed up with BSAC Lanzarote and as a BSAC Overseas Training Centre it offers BSAC Training from Ocean Diver upwards, including the NEW BSAC Advanced Wreck Course. BSAC Lanzarote is also the only BSAC Technical Dive Centre in the Canaries offering OC and CCR BSAC training courses. Here's a link to their site so you can find out more about what they offer.

For more information on the new team, the dive centre and it's facilities and services, please visit our About Us page.
