Snorkel Trips in Gran Canaria
Snorkelling is a fun and easy way to enjoy the beautiful water surrounding Gran Canaria which all the family can enjoy. It is also an excellent way to gain conﬁdence in the water prior to trying scuba diving for the ﬁrst time.
What can I expect from a guided snorkel tour?
At Puerto Rico Diving our snorkel tours involve exploring what is beneath the surface for an hour with an experienced guide. Your guide will give you a thorough brieﬁng before you get in the water, giving you tips on how to snorkel with ease. Once in the water your guide will lead the tour, pointing out all the beautiful marine life and making sure you feel completely comfortable. After snorkelling, over refreshments provided by us, your guide will go through what ﬁsh you have seen.
What equipment will I need for a snorkel tour?
All equipment will be provided by Puerto Rico Diving. We will ﬁt you with ﬁns designed for snorkelling, a mask and snorkel. We will also provide you with a wetsuit, this will help keep you warmer (which means more time to snorkel!) and will help you ﬂoat with ease. Your snorkel guide will carry a signal buoy with them for safety purposes.
What will I see during my snorkel tour?
In Gran Canaria we have a huge variety of marine life waiting to be seen. When snorkelling in shallower water we have the chance to see many colourful ﬁsh such as Ornate Wrasse, Parrotﬁsh, Damselﬁsh and Learned Rockﬁsh. Other marine life which can be seen include Star Fish, Sea Urchins, Cuttelﬁsh, Octopus and Wide Eyed Flounder.
Where will we go?
Being located in the south of Gran Canaria we are lucky to have access to many beautiful sites for snorkelling. We always choose our location depending on the weather and water conditions for the day. Some of the sites we visit during our guided snorkel tours include Playa de Amadores, Playa de Mogan, Tuﬁa and Risco Verde.
When can we go?
