Colourful marine life in the Canaries

There is plenty of colourful marine life to see in the Canary Islands, but not much coral. The Canary Islands are volcanic in nature, which as lead to a more varied sea-floor where you can find caves, arches and tunnels in the volcanic rocks. These are often the daytime hiding places for rays, glasseyes, spiny pufferfish and other nocturnal animals.

5-star PADI Course Gran Canaria 5 stars - "Perfect guided dives in the El Cabron Marine Reserve"

Mr boyfriend and I are both Advanced Open Water divers, and as soon as our credentials and insurance were checked (as it should be!) we were off on 10 awesome and varied dives on the marine reserve and also in the north of the island in Sardina. As we are experienced in diving around the world, it was fantastic to know how safe and knowledgeable the team were - especially Ed and Brett! We really could not have asked for more. I highly recommend Davy Jones for their professionalism, experience and friendliness. I would most certainly return!
