Diving in Tenerife

Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands. The great Teide volcano, the highest point in Spain, offers an incredible backdrop to the island’s surround azure-blue waters. Underwater, you will find a great diversity of flora and fauna, breath-taking rock structures, lava caves, and fantastic shipwrecks. Many Tenerife dive sites are accessible by boat and from land.

Scuba diving in Tenerife is amazing year-round. Visibility ranges from 15 to 40 meters, and water temperatures are between 24ºC in the summer and 20ºC in the winter. Get ready for exciting marine life encounters ranging from colorful nudibranchs to majestic manta rays, dolphins, and sharks.
