Richies Place Dive Site Lanzarote
Richies Place - the dive site with spectacular landscapes and
seascapes. There are wonderful caverns, rocks and sand bars as well
as arches and spectacular drop offs to delight and amaze you. There
are nooks and crannies that house so much micro-life that you'll be
mesmerized watching these little soap operas unfold in before your
very own eyes. It is also the dive site with amazing marine fauna
and flora to observe such as the two orange corals, narval shrimps,
starfish, damsel fish and groupers!
Don't forget to look into the blue every now and again for the passing
stingrays, you might even be lucky enough to spot a manta ray on its
way past of an angel shark! It was this rich diversity of both marine
life and natural underwater architecture that originally attracted
Richard, Richie, for whom the dive site is named after. Richie was
a dive guide, who probably thought this site was the best dive site
in Puerto Del Carmen, Lanzarote, and has definitely helped to make
this dive site one of the most popular in Lanzarote.
To the west end of the dive site there is a plaque in honour of Richie.
Richies Place is a boat dive and although it is suitable for all levels
of divers, to fully appreciate all the wonders it has to offer, it
is recommended for Advanced Open Water divers and ideally for those
with a Deep Specialty as the maximum depth is 35 metres.
