“Fantastic diving experience!”
Review of Buceo Fariones

Buceo Fariones
Reviewed 17 October 2014 via mobile

Best location ever, located in the hotel Los Fariones you can start the dives straight from the hotel's solarium, really comfortable! The staff is really friendly and know the sites very well. They also limit the amount of divers per guide for extra comfort, safety and customisation. Lot of equipment (sizes, brands) and in top condition. Interesting dive sites with lots of local fauna (large rays, barracudas, tuna, cuttlefish, octopus, groupers etc.) Interesting caves and nice wrecks too. Really fun. Really recommend this dive centre in Lanzarote!

Located directly on their own pier at the Hotel Los Fariones they are in a prime position for access to their private boat, and right on top of some of the best shore diving in Lanzarote. While other dive schools will have you carrying equipment down to the beach, Centro de Buceo Hipocampus Fariones are right on their own private beach; and if you are diving any other sites the boat is right there for a short (less than 5min) ride to many others.
The equipment is modern and well maintained, and they provide a range of wetsuits of varying thickness depending on the weather. The instructors are friendly, helpful, and very eager to get the best out of each dive; pointing out the local sea-life and tailoring dive sites to level of experience. Their prices were also very reasonable, and the best in Lanzarote from what I could find.
They also had access to the hotel toilets, and also a storage area for you to keep your belongings dry and safe whilst diving.
As an intermediate diver who has dived with many companies internationally, Centro de Buceo Hipocampus Fariones is one of the best that I have had the pleasure to dive with.
The best way to contact them and arrange a dive is either through the Hotel Los Fariones or give them a call - they were always willing to arrange dives at any time that I was free.

I enjoyed some fantastic diving here in June 2012. The dive sites are beautiful, and its easy to just walk in from the pier to the dive shelf.
It was my girlfriend's first time diving and the instructor was great at keeping her nerves at ease.
I highly recommend to dive with Buceo. The dive sites are beautiful, its safe, and the instructor (named Ivan) made it even more memorable. He's a very good instructor for experienced divers and first timers.
I will most certainly return here next time I am in Lanz.
