This is a special underwater tour of one of the best places to dive in Europe - for people who have never dived before! Full training, and as your are diving in a marine reserve, lots of fish to see!
We collect you from your hotel in the tourist resorts of Gran Canaria, and bring you to the Marine Reserve in Arinaga. If you have dived before and have a valid PADI, BSAC or other qualification we can take you for two dives in the marine reserve.
If you have never dived before we explain how we will dive with you, the key safety features, and tell you about the marine life here in the Reserve.
When you have been fully briefed we get into the wetsuits and go down to the dive site, where the instructors will take you for a forty minute guided tour of a shallower part of the reserve.
You are likely to see damselfish, wrasse, parrotfish, bream, pufferfish, lizardfish, weeverfish; and if you are lucky you could see octopus, cuttlefish, painted combers, filefish, trumpetfish and ocaisionally angel sharks or stingrays.
After the dive there is a chance to re-live it on video with the instructors explaining the fish-life a little more for you, before we take you back to your hotel.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
