Diving Andalusia

Explore diving Andalusia

As you can imagine, shipwrecks are common in this rocky, narrow region of the Mediterranean. Near Gibraltar there are several excellent boats to see, ranging in age from more recent to hundreds of years old. There are even Spanish Galleons offshore, still holding onto their scattered cargo for all this time.

Get up close and personal with some astounding marine life at Tres Picos Almunecar, where the dive begins with a jump into the sea from the rocky shoreline. Offshore rise three pillars, rising up from the sea floor. These interesting peaks make the perfect home for octopi and tentative fish.

For a more industrial sort of dive, head to the Tower in Marbella, where an abandoned metal tower had been overtaken by the sea. There is a wrecked crane arm where eels have made their homes.

When to dive Andalusia

All around, visibility is usually very good averaging at 100ft (30m).

High season for visiting the islands is during July to September when the water temperature is warmer at 66-75˚F (19-24˚C) but you could dive on a year-round basis if you don’t mind the cold.
