Welcome to Lanzarote Dive Centre
Your One Stop Dive Shop
Lanzarote Dive Centre is your One Stop Dive Shop for all your Recreational, Technical, Sidemount and Rebreather Diving and training courses in Puerto Del Carmen, Lanzarote.
The shop is based on the main strip in Puerto Del Carmen and backs on to the beach. The center is run by Paul and Valerie who are both instructors, as well as technical, sidemount
and rebreather divers; so they really do understand your diving and teaching needs.
We welcome divers, groups, families and instructors from all agencies including BSAC, PADi, NAUI, SSI, SDI and TDI and IANTD as well as CMAS and their sub-aqua club affiliates such as
the CFT, the Irish Underwater Council.
We have a small professional team who focus on providing you with a bespoke, safe, professional diving experience. From getting your
first experience of scuba diving to joining our team on a PADi Divermaster Internship for 3 months.
Lanzarote Dive Centre is a PADi 5* IDC Centre and DSAT TecRec Centre as well as a TDI Dive Centre with a full time technical, sidemount and rebreather instructor on staff.
Conservation is of great importance to us from good diving practices, continuing education & debris dives; every dive is a potential debris
dive! We provide hot & cold drinks between dives and snacks too such as individually wrapped cakes.
We welcome rec, tec and CCR instructors and their students - so why not make Lanzarote Dive Centre your dive center away from home. You will have all the benefits of completing your training
in clear, safe, warm waters as well as the use of our classroom and facilities, including the tv, video, laptop and if need by the blending panel too. Tap into our local knowledge, have the benefit of our
assistance with logistics and we can provide the refreshments too! Contact us for more information.
Sea Life on Lanzarote
Where to start as there is so much marine life here!
From shoals of whitebait & bream, wrasse & parrot fish, to octopi, trumpet fish & the ancient fish.
The big boys include Atlantic Groupers, bigger than Paul (and he's not short at 6'!), Sting rays & Spiney Butterfly rays. We are also lucky to have Angle Sharks regularly throughout the winter and spring seasons and the elusive seahorses both of which are endangered species.
Night dives are really special: see the fish asleep whilst the octopi, eels, crabs, shrimps, starfish, sea cucumbers and the delightful cuttlefish all come out to play.
Our aim is to provide you with a bespoke guided dive that is taylored to your diving preferences and needs. If wreck diving is your passion then we have a choice of wrecks to offer in a variety of different depths. Perhaps photography is your thing, if so we will seek out the little critters
with you or take you on the most scenic routes. We ensure that you have a knowledgeable dive guide to ensure your safety as the currents can change and be a little unpredicatable at times. Your guide is also there to enhance your experience with information on the marine life and the
Dive Sites and to make sure you have fun and perhaps most importantly offer you refreshements (choice of drinks and cakes) bewteen the dives. All this is available from the starting price for a double dive of €50 per diver tanks and weights only or €70 per diver with full equipment hire.
We offer package prices too for six or more dives! More Info
