Canary Islands – Dramatic Volcanic Seacapes
Overview of diving the Canary Islands
The Canary Islands are a volcanic island chain off the coast of Africa in the eastern Atlantic. The nature of their formation has led to some spectacular volcanic underwater landscapes. Year round water temperatures of at least 18°C plus good visibility means divers can enjoy the rich biodiversity the Canary Islands have to offer.

Our dive trip to the Canary Islands
We visited the island of Tenerife in 2018. Tenerfie has some nice shore diving, where you can potentially see turtles and rays. There are also a couple of wrecks scattered around the island which are great to explore.
You can read more about the dive sites we visited in the post below.
Tenerife is one of the larger islands in the Canary Islands. It offers both busy towns and quiet villages for tourists. The majority of the diving is focused on the south coast due to the large number of towns here, however there is good diving throughout the island.
