Attraction details
Owner description: The only legally operated dive centre in Lanzarote located directly on the beach in Puerto del Carmen - an unbeatable location here on the island for scuba diving! No long walks in full kit in the baking heat or kitting up at the back of van! We offer daily shore and boat diving (as we have our own hard boat ) and therefore can offer you the most dive sites - all at the same price - no extra charges for boat or night dives!!. Courses for the beginner and qualified divers too. Pleasure diving too, for the solo diver or groups (with discounted group rates!) - who can use their own instructors to teach or can dive unguided at times to suit you. English owned with a professional and friendly dive team. Open 7 days a week, every day of the year! We also have a couple of bars locally where our divers meet to relax, listen to music, play bingo (with cash prizes), have quiz nights, load their video/photos on our plasma screens and meet fellow divers. Family friendly safe holiday resort with lots to do for the non divers too. As all our sites are on our doorstep you are not gone long from any non divers in your family/group. We will not be beaten on like for like genuine quotes! Other make promises - we deliver!!!

“Fantastic free snorkelling”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

This is based at Playa Chika a very sheltered bay near to Peurto Del Carmen. The dive school looks great and very professional but we did not get involved with that. This is a wonder safe and enclosed bay with easy entry into the water even for disabled visitors. Snorkelling equipment can be hired for just 6 euro per day but we have our own. The water is crystal clear to at least 40 feet and we enjoyed watching the divers going through their paces below us. Tip - take some bread from the hotel breakfast and hold it tightly in your hands releasing small particles as you swim. The fish will swarm around you!!! The coral is unfortunately dead here but there is plenty of marine life to hold your interest.

“Another Great week of diving!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

The fact I have been returning to Safari for several years should say a lot about the professionalism, simplicity, location, quality of diving and simple helpfulness of staff - The location is perfect, right on the beach and on average 15m to the waters edge and about 50m to the jetty for boat dives (no-one likes lugging kit 'miles' to the water!).

Still seeing new things every year, including Felix (Grouper), who is still there 10+ years later, along with the other bits of sea life that are growing (including one very large octopus that looked like it had devoured more than just the one crab for tea (Very large crap shell was all that remained!). Barricuda, jacks, Rays, Angel Sharks, seahorses, cuttlefish etc all regularly seen,

The staff are great, know their stuff and can have a laugh as well!!

Steve and Wendy (owners), have the centre setup just right, storage for your own kit, plenty of kit to hire if needed and as mentioned before, nothing is too much trouble.

Will be back in October!

“Very good”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Just got back from a week in Lanzarote. Dived with Safari diving a couple of times. Enjoyed it, Wendy and Steve are very friendly, the center is busy and there is quite a few guides/ instructors there. Diving straight of the beach was nice also the boat diving was good. Its quite good diving and plenty of sea life, would happily dive with them again..

“Great diving, family welcome”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

I've holidayed in Lanzarote twice and dived with Safari both times. First class outfit, good quality kit, guides and diving.
The night dive was really special...dancing Squid and seahorses. Will be returning later this year and I won't go anywhere else for my diving in Lanzarote
