PADI 5* Dive Centre

Casa Limon, our Dive Centre in Arinaga has some of the best facilities and probably the best ambiance in the Canaries. The large garden is relaxed and friendly, and there is a choice of shady corners or a sun-deck to chill out in between the dives, while connecting with friends on the free wifi. Nearby, in the centre of the reserve, the Playa del Cabrón is a great place to learn to dive with one of our highly rated instructors, on a PADI Open Water Diving course, because it is sheltered and safe, yet has a prolific and colourful marine life. You can also take part in a more advanced course in the deeper waters, where some of the more unusual creatures are found, or take a snorkelling course or marine safari; and don't forget the advantages of our low VAT rate for buying your scuba diving equipment.

Gran Canaria diving centre recommended on TripAdvisor
What a fantastic outfit! All the staff were welcoming and helpful from the outset. Booked the advanced open water course having completed open water in UK. Day one was spent getting back into things, a couple of fun dives (no doubt testing that we weren't clowns!). Thanks Hector and Edwardo. ..... Thanks again for a fab week, we'll recommend to the world and look you up if we're in Gran Canaria again. Give us a shout if you're ever visiting West Wales, we'll throw you off some cliffs Coasteering :D Cleopatra & Jerry x

All the Best Dive Sites

Our experts will help you explore the stunning subaqua scenery of the marine park with it's caves, arches, swim-throughs and walls, and we might show you schools of barracuda, a giant fish ball, the sedate glide of a sting-ray or angelshark, the unique beauty of a seahorse or a cuttlefish effortlessly changing colour. Every guided dive in the El Cabrón Marine Reserve will enhance your understanding of the complex ecosystems in marine environments.

We also organise excursions to all the other major dive sites in Gran Canaria, such as Sardina del Norte, The wrecks of Las Palmas or Mogan, and can arrange deep dives, wreck dives, night dives and special dives for underwater photographers. However many of our divers tell us that this site is one of the best for Canary Islands diving due to the unique combination of dramatic scenery, quantity of marine life and huge diversity of species.

In the present 'credit crunch' you don't waste your hard earned diving money by not getting to see the best dive site on the island, or using the best facilities. Why put up with sites with only meagre fish life when you can dive in the Marine Reserve? And don't put up with second-rate on-shore facilities. If you browse through the photo gallery, or look at the dive sites, you will get a good feel for the marine life and variety here.
