South Gran Canaria’s clear seas and abundance of marine life make it a scuba-diving hot spot. This half-day package lets you pre-book your beginner’s diving experience on a day and time that suits your schedule. The tour includes a boat dive—something many diver courses don’t. Safely learn diving basics, then enjoy an unforgettable underwater adventure.
  • Try scuba diving on an introductory course in Puerto Rico in Gran Canaria
  • See if you like scuba in half a day, without committing to multiday course
  • Includes a boat dive so you experience the island’s seas and marine life
  • Ideal for novices: includes training, equipment, and choice of departures
What to Expect
Book your day and time, then travel independently to the Puerto Rico dive center for a safety briefing from a PADI instructor. Get acquainted with the scuba equipment and learn about procedures such as how to communicate underwater. Then, don your scuba gear and head to the shallow water area. Practice breathing under the surface and learn other key skills in preparation for your boat dive. Board the boat at the harbor and cruise to one of Gran Canaria´s premier diving spots. Then, with your instructor close by, make your introductory dive. Enjoy the sensation of breathing underwater and waft over the seabed, watching the marine life as you go. Lastly, return by boat to the diving center and receive your diving certificate. If you wish, learn how your introductory session can serve as the first step towards PADI certification. Your experience ends when you leave the center.

Much to my surprise, it was the best experience I have had on holiday. My kids, the youngest 13 also had a blast. The instructor was patience and very reassuring since we were very sceptical just before diving in the deep. A must for all who have never tried it before and want

A year ago I had my first diving experience, so I am a beginner. I was together with a Dutch and an Austrian girl. First we received a brief explanation about the equipment. After that a short under-water practise just across the street in the harbour and off we went. 10 minutes
