Recent Conditions for divers in Arinaga
This page will give you information from the last time we dived in Arinaga. We update it every time we dive so that it gives you information to use to plan your dives in the El Cabrón Marine Reserve. The information is generalised, so while conditions may be 'poor' in one area they may still be good in other areas. We don't dive on Sundays, and we run excursions to other parts of the island, when the status will show 'did not dive'
Check out the log of recent highlights and special sightings and conditions to see what the instructors from our diving centre have shown our guests in Gran Canaria recently, or use one of the historical files to see how the weather is at any time of the year.

Divers Weather Forecast
Here is a 72-hour forecast for the Arinaga and El Cabrón Marine Reserve area of Gran Canaria (Arinaga sits between Vargas and Pozo Izquierdo).
KEY: The star rating is for SURFERS, so the fewer stars, generally the better conditions become for diving.
