Norman Sparrow is now doing exclusive diving trips for experienced divers who are looking not to be guided everywhere. We had a week's diving from the boast doing two dives a day for 5 days, and we were the only two on the boat. He supplies tanks and weights. The RIB is great for getting to dive sites that you couldn't hope to do from the shore. If you know the dive sites in Lanzarote, and you are into underwater photography then this is ideal! Norman's very accommodating in relation to itinery - so if you wanted to dive a particular site 10 times, then Norman will accommodate you. He's also quite happy to do back to back diving, without coming back into port. We had a great week's diving - with Angel Sharks; Octopus; Cuttlefish; Barracude; Stingrays; Nudibranchs; and thousands upon thousands of Sardines. We'll definitely be back to do this again!

On a recent diving holiday we were looking to do a Powerboat Level 2 course and Lanzarote Powerboat Services was recommended by our local dive center.
Norman was thorough, proffesional and patient. He was also very understanding when I tried to crunch his boat and displayed cat like reflexes to take over and avert trouble. We learnt more than the course required which was much appreciated. The boat itself was of high quality and very well maintained. Combined with a great location and superb weather it was a fantastic experience which I can't recommend highly enough!

WOW !! I have just returned from Lanzarote with a certification to drive powerboats!

I hadn't planned this before going on holiday, and had had a few days enjoying the sunrays and wonderful warm sea (bit different to the UK !!) - then decided I wanted to do something different.

I had a "try drive experience" with a very friendly instructor called Norman of Lanzarote Powerboat Services. That was it - hooked! I then went onto do the two day course and gained the Level 2 RYA powerboating certificate!

I found Norman very professional in his approach and valued all the safety tips he included whilst teaching me the course.

I also thought the course was very reasonably priced and am going to back to do more courses with Norman.

Norman kindly came and got me from my apartment in Puerto Del Carmen and then when the course finished, we had a beer together in the marina at Puerto Calero! A great end to the course! The extra touches meant a lot.

If anybody fancies doing something a little different whilst on holiday I would certainly recommend this. I intend to continue with this in the UK whilst I wait until I go back to Lanzarote.
