Something to watch for when booking is your accommodation is the breakfast
times. We ask divers to get to the dive centre for 08:30 so that we
can gear up and leave by 09:00 at the latest. This is so that we can
get a parking space which minimizes the walk to the water when fully
kitted up; this makes a huge difference in the summer sun! Obviously,
if you are self-catering then this is not an issue but divers have commented
that even when breakfast opens at 08:00 they are not always ready to
serve you until nearer 08:15.

Other Attractions in Lanzarote?
Lanzarote Dive Centre is a license excursion operator - in English
that means we can book your island tours & excursions, often cheaper
than your hotel or tour operator. On your last non-diving day or for
the non-divers in your group why not experience the culture of the island
or even more fun in the sun!
Popular choices include:
Timanfaya, The National Park
The South & North Island Tours
for more information.
Other useful information
Book early to avoid disappointment – yes this applies to your diving
but also your driving. The island only has so many rental vehicles and
when they are gone; they’re gone! You could rent a motorbike or quad
bike as an alternative.
When driving or riding make sure you have your passport and driving
license with you in case you are stopped; they will want to see them.
Belt up – or face an on the stop fine of €80 per person. It’s the individual
and not the driver that is liable but they will make the driver go to
a cashpoint (ATM) so the fine can be paid.
The Italian La Tratorria does very great pizza and fish dishes and the
ice-cream shop across the road from it is also fab! According to Andrea,
who regularly dives with us, lives on the island and is German, they
do a mean German style ice-cream with all the toppings! We also like
the Peking Duck, which does a great Chinese eat all you like buffet
suitable for any budget. Our other favourite is the Himalaya Indian
and Nepalise restaurant which is a little bit further along and never
fails to provide excellent service and cuisine.
