Gran Canaria
Diving in Spring - March April and May

COVID-19 Diving Centre Update

The dive centre will be open again from 1st July! The Canary Islands have had some of the lowest infection rates in Spain, and new infections are now minimal. This makes us one of the safest holiday diving destinations in these changed times.

We have implementing lots of small procedure changes to make it safe for everyone, and are looking forward to diving with you all again soon. Use our contact form to reserve your place as one of our changes is a reduced number of divers each day.

See our short Diving in Gran Canaria You-tube channel  Question & Answer video about diving during the CoronaVirus.

Coming to Gran Canaria and thinking about diving in March April and May? Well, you can dive here all year round, and as Gran Canaria is the most southerly of the main Canary Islands, you will find the warmest waters in Europe, especially in Winter.

Spring is also a great time to see our only shark, the critically endangered angel shark (squatina squatina). These return to their breeding sites in early Winter and stay till the end of June.

During Spring angel sharks tend to be more active, especially hopeful males searching for a receptive female.

Spring is also a great time for night dives, as the sun sets around 6.00-7.00pm, which means that unlike in winter we can get in and out of the water at a convenient hour. And with angelsharks and rays coming back into the area to feed at night you never quite know what you will bump into in the dark.. or what will bump into you!

Spring is also the best time to find brightly coloured nudibranch on the reef. Hypsellodoris picta is most visible, but look out carefully for Golden Sponge snail and 'vaca suize'´- the cow snail as well.

Between dives you can relax in the garden at Davy Jones Diving Centre, Casa Limon, and enjoy the spring sunshine in the garden with a hot drink in your hands.
