Visited with Non Stop Divers, Playa Blanca. Instructors explained in detail about every different sculpture/installation before we went in, and that really added to the experience. Otherwise, visibility was not great. And the sculptures didn’t attract as much marine life as I’d expected. The whole...More

Very disappointing and expensive dive. Really don't see the point of it - it attracted a fraction of the sea life of other, much prettier dive sites. I wouldn't dive it again and if I am honest, I wish I hadn't bothered. My brother dived...More

My son and I dived Museo Atlantico with Lanzarote Non Stop Divers. Despite being a relatively recent addition the sculptures have already become home to a wide variety of fish and other sea life, and are also interesting and thought-provoking in their own right. Recommended...More

We did this with Dive College Lanzarote it was a fantastic experience for both my 13 year old daughter and I. Not only a beautiful dive but it also has some powerful messages for the human race. Excellent thanks
