What to expect of our dive sites in Tenerife:
Even though the Canary Islands are a part of Spain, they are actually closer to Africa than to Europe. Located on the Atlantic Ocean, Tenerife is a fantastic destination for diving. Not only does the sun shine all year around, but the average diving conditions are excellent. The volcanic topography provides many dramatic rock formations, with plenty of caves and swim-throughs to explore.
The Canary Islands are next to the Gulf Stream which regulates the water temperature and can bring in large marine life. Water temperate is lowest at 17-18° C/63-64° F in the winter and is highest 23-24°C/73-75° F in the summer. Usually a 5mm wetsuit is suitable in the summer and we suggest to use extra layers such as a vest and hood in the winter. Normal underwater visibility averages around 30 metres/100 feet, depending on local diving conditions.
What to expect to see:
Diving in Tenerife you will encounter Atlantic and Mediterranean species. On a typical dive you can see a huge variety of marine life. Sting-Ray species vary from Atlantic Stingrays to Bull-Rays, Eagle-Rays and Marbled Electric Rays. Also, we see Green Sea Turtles, Angel Sharks and even encounter pods of Dolphins. As well as the large life, we see many Moray Eels, Octopus, Lobsters, Crabs and schools such as Roncadores. Be sure to look in-between the rocks as you never know what you might find hiding, maybe a nudibranch or two.
Not only do we have amazing topography and a huge variety of marine life, but we also have some shipwrecks! We have five wrecks available to us in the South, ranging from 18m/60 feet to 40m /130 feet and some are penetrable. Visit us to be surprised by the beauty of diving in Tenerife.
