Tenerife Underwater

The Underwater Wonders of Tenerife

The Fortunate Islands for Divers: Sunshine All Year Round, Warm and Crystal-Clear Water, along with Spectacular Underwater Volcanic Landscapes, Attract Divers in the Canary Islands. Sometimes referred to as the “Lucky Islands” due to their world-class subtropical climate. Surrounded by black sand beaches, off the northwest coast of Africa.

Also known as the Canaries, it was an important port of call for Spanish galleons taking advantage of the direct Trade Winds to the Americas. The seven largest islands: Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera, and El Hierro – are major European tourist destinations, drawing in over 12 million visitors annually.

You can choose towns with vibrant nightlife or quiet little villages where stress disappears.

And that’s even before you start diving.

Visibility of over 30 meters is common, and water temperature never drops much below 19-20°C, making it easy to enjoy the unique biodiversity. Divers will encounter species from both the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, as well as some endemic to the islands themselves.

Geopolitically secure, it’s a privileged location thanks to concessions from the Canarian government, which keep prices low for both air travel and accommodations.
