Scuba diving is one of the most popular adventure activities in the Canary Islands. Divers enjoy the wide variety of colourful sub-tropical and temperate marine species, and the warming effect of the Gulf Stream means that you can dive here easily all year round. There are over 80 PADI diving centres in the Canaries who train almost 10,000 people to dive safely every year. Worldwide there are over 6500 PADI Dive Centres, with over 135,000 individual instructors who are complete training courses with over 1 million students every year.
‘We are looking forward to a great autumn of diving in Gran Canaria’ said Brian, ‘we are ready to welcome more students onto courses as well as the many qualified divers who come to the Canaries in Autumn to explore the waters and enjoy the best visibility and warmest temperatures of the year.
