Gran Canaria Scuba Diving

Gran Canaria is a great place for scuba diving. The subtropical waters mean that you have a good chance of seeing stingrays, octopus, cuttlefish, bream, angel sharks and many other interesting fish.



There are ray banks, reefs and shipwrecks here. There are a number of dive centres on the island. I usually dive with Top Diving – who are located in Puerto Escala in Puerto Rico. If you are in Playa del Inglés you can try Sunset Divers – who also do dive courses and specialist courses.


You can choose from a dive introductions right through to dive courses such as Divemaster or even Instructor courses. The water is usually 20º or 21ºC here so you do need a wetsuit but not a drysuit like you would in the UK!


If you fancy doing something different from mini golf, drinking, sunbathing, fishing and dolphin trips why not give scuba diving a go?
