Diving in Murcia

Explore diving in Murcia

Murcia offers some of the best scuba diving in the Mediterranean and is home to the beautiful Islas Hormigas Reserve. The Marine Reserve was set up in 1995 to protect the area and conserve the marine life, allowing it to grow into the amazing condition that you see it in today. Like an underwater mountain range, these reefs appear from the depths to just below the surface, attracting a large abundance of marine life.

Here you can dive with many species from large grouper and barracuda to schooling jacks and dentex. Mola Mola and tuna can also be seen swimming past at certain times of the year making this area a unique place to dive.

Other dive sites include: Cala Muerte, Cala Renona, Isla Grosa, Isla Farrallon, and the Turia and Naranjito Wrecks.

When to dive in Murcia

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.
