They are based away from the main tourist resorts in the town of Arinaga, as this is where some of the best dive sites in Gran Canaria can be found.
They are based in Casa Limon, a spacious, relaxed property with a large garden where you can prepare your kit, and relax in style between and after your dives. The underwater landscape in Arinaga is dramatic and varied and is rated as one of the best places to dive in the Canaries because of the variety and volume of marine life you can encounter. You can swim through arches, explore caves, or seek out creatures such as angel sharks, rays, morays, barracudas, sea-horses and much more. The waters are sub-tropical which means that many of the fish are brightly coloured, and diving takes place all year round with February being the coldest month. This PADI 5-star Dive centre has been awarded two certificates of excellence, and the shallower dives sites are excellent for PADI Training courses from snorkeling, through discover dives (try-dives) up to the full range of PADI Courses including PADI Open Water and PADI Advanced Open Water Courses. The marine life is so good here that in winter some students have even seen angel sharks sleeping during the day in the sea-water training pool!
