Waikiki Drift Dive
Waikiki - a tropical name for a truly tropical dive, with the
sun light sparkling off the white sands and the abundant marine life
to be seen all around you, but wait save this part for the safety
stop because there is a shelf to traverse and a cliff edge to drop
down over. Follow the sand to the drop off and you will experience
a fantastic wall dive full of small caves filled with micro-environments
teaming with life. Don't forget to look out into the blue for the
big boys; different species of ray and maybe even a mola mola!
To the east of the cliff under a ledge we are privileged to find some
of the shallowest growing orange coral in Lanzarote and probably the
world too. Usually orange coral grows at depths of 50 - 200 meters;
most definitely in the realms of the technical diver. Here at Waikiki
however an Open Water Diver will be able to share in seeing this most
delightful of corals as it can be found at only 18meters!
Continuing the dive down to the deepest part of the cliff, at approximately
28 meters, you will find a small cave and another truly amazing sight
as there are some beautiful anemones to be seen. Waikiki truly is
a tropical dive with some of the best features to be found at this
dive site with some truely amazing aquatic wildlife, being one of lanzarote dive sites best areas.
