Diving in San Agustín, Gran Canaria
Divers also search for a PADI dive centre in San Agustín, but because the adjacent diving is poor, there is currently no PADI Approved Dive Centre in Playa del Ingles, Mapaslomas, Meloneras, or San Agustin or the other resorts of the 'Sur'. It may look on the map as though you are some distance from the best diving on the island, but the motorway is close by and means that it is quick and easy to get from San Agustín to Arinaga to enjoy some of the best scuba diving in the Canaries.
The El Cabrón area is famous because the volcanic reef has arches, caves, cliffs and with these varied habitats it is a marine-life hotspot where you can see almost the whole catalog of marine species from tiny seahorses to angel sharks and butterfly rays. The main advantages of diving in the El Cabrón Marine Reserve are:-
- See more, with over 10 routes and 400 marine species
- 'Casa Limon' is the most spacious and relaxed dive centre in Gran Canaria
- Our team are mature, knowledgeable and highly rated on TripAdviser!
A very relaxing yet rewarding day of diving with my two sons. We were picked up from our stay on the agreed time (no waiting), with a swift transfer to the diving center. Nice garden like diving center facilties, with an instructor speaking dutch (our native language) as a bonus. The Cabron area is excellent for diving; lots of sea-life, two sightings of angel shark, and a trumpet fish. Thanks again for the memorable day!

We offer a free collection service for divers from San Agustín every day for divers, so that they can come here in our air conditioned mini-bus and enjoy the best diving in Gran Canaria, and be back with their family in Playa del Inglés, San Agustín or Meloneras in time for afternoon tea.
Nearby, Playa del Inglés also has a very vibrant night-life, and plenty of reasonably priced acommodation, so you can party one night and then dive on other days, chilling out between in the dunes or shopping in the Yumbo centre.
In summary, if you are coming here with a family and only diving a couple of days, then San Agustín is a great base from which to explore Gran Canaria. There are plenty of things to do and see including two water parks, the beach area, horse riding, jeep safaris, sky-diving and helicopter trips (to name just a few). From here it is a short journey to the El Cabrón marine reserve where you can take part in some top diving experiences.
Explore our site using the menu and you can see the main dive routes in the Arinaga Marine Reserve or browse thought our photo gallery to find out more about the opportunities to take your own photos, or find out more about learning to dive while in San Agustín on a PADI course. If you have any questions about diving, courses, or just getting here or staying here, then use our express contact page to ask Brian or Jessica for some help in planning a great holiday.Plan your dive excursion
