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'
