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!

Hadn't been diving for three years and was definitely rusty. Hector and Brett did a great job if looking after me as I was quite nervous. Nice, relaxed dive centre, good equipment and only ten minutes from the dice site. Recommend them!

We have just come back from spending two weeks diving here. I wanted an experienced instructor who made me feel at ease to do some further courses. Raymond was fantastic, calm and really challenged us and let us develop. He ensured that we didn't just tick the boxes, but that we understood the theory behind it. We will be booking... More

I was surprised with the quality of the dives in El cabron and the team from Davy Jones were very friendly and helpful. They divided the group by level of experience what makes the dives much more enjoyable to me. Very professional and competent team.

--- don't blame the diving center. Material is slightly worn but well functioning. Some dives may not be easy with wrong direction of swell and wind. Check upfront. We cancelled a dive and there was no blame or negative feelings. That was supernice. The guides spot things I would not have seen despite feeling extremely comfortable under water with my... More

Davy J diving is a professional, well organised outfit with very friendly efficient guides and support. The emphasis was on safety and the dive briefs were comprehensive. And once you were in the water, the dives were excellent and I would particular recommend the Hole in the Wall site. However, be aware that most of the sites are shore dives,... More

Hi Andy, Yes, we had fun underwater and saw loads, but we all know that you struggled with the exits! Some of our foreign guests would like to thank you for extending their English vocabulary!

As an advanced diver the whole experience with Davy Jones was most enjoyable. The equipment they provided was first class which I think is very important for a safe and comfortable dive.
