Learning to take your first breaths underwater is exciting, add to that being in the ocean and you've a whole new underwater world to discover when scuba diving in Lanzarote.
Our try dives are from the shore on our house reef which is ideal for try dives as it is a protected bay. We keep the group sizes small, tailored to the individual and taken at a pace that suits you to keep it safe and fun.
Our house reef is full of marine life including many colourful reef fish such as the ornate wrasse, the parrot fish and puffer fish as well as shoals of bream, damsel fish and sardines. You may also see octopus, cuttlefish and there is always the chance of seeing larger fish such as barracuda, rays and the endangered Angel Shark.
Here's what you can expect on the day:
- a dive briefing to ensure you understand what is involved and expected of you
- learning a few basic hand signals
