Many dive centres offer dives from shore from some of the beautiful beaches on the island. A wider range of sites can be accessed from small boats with most sites being less than 30 minutes from the sports harbours in the south of the island.
Expect to encounter many marine species, including trumpet fish, snapper, barracuda, stingrays, octopus, cuttlefish (sepia), moray eels and damselfish. In the winter months angel shark are regularly found as they come closer to shore to procreate. Occasionally turtles and dolphin are also observed.
Diving is year round in the south of Gran Canaria.
Water temperatures vary from around 16 degrees celcius in winter (January to March) to 24 degrees celcius in summer (August to October). As there is sunshine almost every day comfort levels are quickly restored after exposure to cool water during longer dives.
