Overview

Lanzarote Dive Centre is the No1 choice for both new and experienced divers, we are fully legal, located on Avda de Las Playas, on the second floor below the mini golf. We conduct daily diving trips to Playa Chica, the harbour wrecks, and Mala to the north of the island and The Museo Atlántico in the south. We have our own access to the beach which offers safe and secure access to the sea. We are constantly being amazed by what we discover from sprats and bream to the amazing stingray and Angel Sharks. Whether you are coming to discover the underwater world for the first time, coming as an experienced diver, or wanting to bring the whole family for a snorkel tour, Lanzarote Dive Centre can provide you with the professional, safe, fun experience that you are looking for.
