Scuba Diving in Southern Spain

Scuba Diving in Southern Spain

Andalusia-the place where two seas meet-invites you to explore a new, exciting and beautiful world: The Underwater World.

Imagine you are part of a world of peace, quietness and beauty. Imagine you are scuba diving, exploring a mix of rocky underwater landscapes, reefs and wrecks.

Tarifa is the most southern point of the European continent with breathtaking views on Africa and known as a water-sport destination. The rocky coast provides great conditions for spectacular dives, as the Atlantic Ocean washes diverse marine life into the Mediterranean.

Gibraltar is especially known for its interesting wrecks, that can be reached through shore and boat dives. The wrecks lie in depths between 12m and 36m, and therefore make them accessible for beginners and advanced divers. The varied marine life in the waters around Gibraltar include congers, groupers, seahorses, spider crabs, squid, lobsters, trigger fish, sunfish and dolphins plentifully.

La Herradura is a wonderful place where you will find three big rocks rising up to the surface from 14 meters below.

Diving around these rocks will allow you to experience natural marine life within caves.

Marine del Este is the dive site that can be accessed all year around for all levels of diving, and therefore is also known as the most important dive site throughout Spain. Within this area there are 10 dive sites that are used, ranging from depths between 6m and 30m. The sites are significant through wall, reef and cavern dives, which all are easily accessible from the beach. The beautifully clear waters of this area are teaming with marine life and are part of the Cerro Gordo national park.

So why not try something new, something exciting, something amazingly beautiful? Why not be one of those exploring beautiful and magical places? Why not make your first diving experience or refine your diving skills?

There are many diving school along the coast offering a full range of PADI courses, the most popular diving courses in the world.

The Discover Scuba Diving course is the perfect solution if you want to try breathing under water or want to surprise friends and family with a special gift.
