PADI Discover Scuba Diving

If you've never tried scuba diving before then the PADI discover scuba diving is for you! You will get to explore the amazing underwater world of Lanzarote and see a great variety of marine life!

When you arrive at the dive centre we will take you through the PADI discover scuba diving brochure, you will then be kitted out with mask, fins and a wetsuit. Next there is a briefing telling you about scuba diving including the dive you are about to go on and what type of fish you can see! Starting off in waist deep water we practice the breathing until you are comfortable. Once everyone is happy, we go for the dive exploring Playa Chica - our little bay that is perfect for your first time diving! Teeming with marine life, you can see bream, damselfish, parrotfish, ornate wrasse and much more! The depth gradually increases to a maximum of 6 metres, with our lovely clear water you will still be able to see the surface!

Here at Manta Diving Lanzarote your safety and enjoyment is our number 1 priority! We keep our group sizes small, usually with a maximum of 6 people with at least 2 instructors in the water.
