Canarian Islands

Submitter Comments:
Boat or Shore Dive 0m to 12m -- Usually starting from Playa de la Barrilla, this gentle dive takes divers out onto the natural extensions of the sheltering horseshoe arms of the bay. There is a long natural cave at 5 metres and the bay itself is very sheltered and home to vast shoals of tame fish. Look out for Grey Mullet, Sea Bream, Parrotfish, Lizardfish, Wrasse, Damselfish and Cuttlefish. At night Octopus, Angel Sharks and Tube Worms are commonly seen. This bay is used for training, refresher and night dives, but is worth exploring by all levels of diver.

 LANZAROTE, situated approximately 95kms off the west coast of North Africa, is a volcanic island rising out of the deep Atlantic Ocean. It is the most northerly of the 7 Canary Islands and is on the same latitude as Florida and the Red Sea. Lanzarote benefits from a sub-tropical climate with more days of sunshine and fewer days of rain than the other Canary Islands.
