PADI Divemaster Course

COVID-19 and Volcano - Diving Centre Update

Traffic lights go

We are Open! We are about 250km from the volcano on the island of La Palma, and are not effected by the volcanic eruption there. Our thoughts are with the families that have lost their properties.
Regarding COVID-19, the Canary Islands have some of the lowest infection rates in Spain, and most attractions and hotels are now open, including our diving centre.

You can travel safely to Gran Canaria and enjoy your scuba dives here.
