If it is your first time, be prepared to have a life changing experience! You will learn everything you need to know in order to have a fun and safe dive, including a few skills that later will be practiced in shallow water in a controlled and protected environment to give you time to get used with the equipment before we go any deeper. Minimum age is 8 years old, being able to swim is not necessary and the depth will be adapted to your level of confidence and the PADI standards. Your safety and satisfaction are our priorities. You will need to fill up a participant statement which also includes a liability release form and a medical questionnaire which purpose is to find out if you should be examined by a doctor before participating in recreational dive activities, there is a link to check it out on “who can come”. Lanzarote offers spectacular conditions throughout the year and you are guaranteed to see plenty of aquatic life, tropical fish, experience new sensations, visit unique volcanic rock landscapes and glide weightless in clear water. Water temperature varies from 17°C during winter and up to 23°C in summer, and the experience lasts around 3 hours in total.
