One of the leading dive centres in the Canary Islands, has just celebrated 15 years under the leadership of the respected PADI and BSAC Instructor, Brian Goldthorpe.
Brian has been running Davy Jones Diving since 2002, and in that time has taken an estimated 40,000 people diving in the El Cabrón Marine Reserve, which is nearby. In 2015 they moved into an enlarged facility with a large garden where divers can relax between the dives. During all that time he has been supported by Eduardo Vera, giving a strong stable management team who have an intimate knowledge of the dive sites and the variety of marine life they find there. They have been awarded a Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence for each of the last four years.
“We seem to find new things even after such a long time, and this year some of the highlights have included new areas with seahorses, tiny locust lobsters, brightly coloured barred hogfish, canarian frogfish, flabellina nudibranch and even a migrant from the Caribbean, a soldierfish” said Brian.
“We have also introduced extra thermal layers so you can ‘chill, don’t freeze’ while you do diver training in Winter. Flight prices are at a ten-year low at the moment and more students are choosing to do their pool training in the UK followed by open water dives in the warm waters of the Canaries in winter.”
In addition they have increased their commitment to angel shark research by supporting local research experts , Elasmocan, with a special T-shirt. For every T-shirt sold a contribution of €5.00 is made towards angel shark research.
