Gran Canaria, One of europes few year round scuba diving destinations
Here in Gran Canaria we are extremely lucky to be able to scuba dive all year round. No matter what time of year it is, we have some fantastic scuba diving waiting for you.
At Puerto Rico Diving we oﬀer daily guided dives for all certiﬁed divers. Because “we make the diﬀerence” we always keep our dive groups small and of similar experience levels. Our instructors will choose dive sites based on the days weather conditions and our divers requests. If there is a dive site you would really like to visit, let us know and we will try our best to get you there!
Our guided dive trips consist of 2 dives, with a snack provided by us for the surface interval. Your experienced guide will be on hand during your guided dive to make your dive as relaxed and fun as possible. Our divers safety and enjoyment is of huge importance to us at Puerto Rico Diving so we will always plan our dives with this in mind.
