It is surely the most famous dive in the Canary Islands and one of the most important in Europe. Submarine volcano that emerges from nowhere and stays about 9 meters deep from the surface. Giving us a landscape unmatched anywhere in the world.

It is the place where we have had the most impressive encounters, highlighting whale shark, Prionace glauca, mobulas tarapacanas, dolphins and even rolcual whales.
