The proud owners Steve and Wendy
Steve and Wendy visited the Island of Lanzarote for many years on diving holidays and decided that Safari Diving SL had the best location for a dive centre in Lanzarote ,so it became a dream come true when they actually bought the dive centre and moved from the UK to Puerto del Carmen in Lanzarote .
Before moving to Lanzarote (the all year round resort), they came to Safari Diving SL many years bringing students and dive clubs from dive schools in the UK to teach diving (from beginners and upwards) and also for pleasure diving for their qualified divers, all of whom enjoyed the many delights that the diving in Lanzarote has to offer.
The Dive Centre
Safari Diving is a Dive Centre committed to a high level of diver safety and quality training.
They were rewarded for their commitment by receiving the Ministry of Defence approved dive centre status – one of only 10 dive centres worldwide.
We welcome divers of all qualifications and levels, disabled divers, non-divers and children.
Our staff speak many languages including: English, Dutch, Spanish, German, Italian and French.
Direct access to the best dive sites in Lanzarote
The Dive centre is located in Puerto del Carmen, the main tourist centre of Lanzarote. We are situated on a sandy beach - Playa Chica, near the jetty.
From directly in front of our centre you have access to the best dive sites the island has to offer!
All the other dive centres on the island have to travel to our beach as it is the main shore entry point.
The bay is protected by rocky outcrops and is suitable for beginners and the more experienced diver, providing varied and interesting diving and has been approved by the MOD as a confined water area.
Next door to our beach is the jetty, from where our daily boat dives take place - there are no extra charges for our boat dives !
Boat dives are only 5-10 minutes ride.
Suitably qualified divers can dive with a buddy at any time to suit themselves (within our opening hours), whilst we do provide guided dives at no extra charge and these are scheduled at least three times daily. We can provide solo divers with a buddy on our guided dives. All divers must first do a shore dive with our guides.
