Make your next dive memorable. Count the Angel Sharks

Join us on the 5/6/7/8 December. We are participating in the 3rd annual event of Count the Angel Sharks. 

Help us secure the future of the critically endangered angel shark in its unique stronghold of the Canary Islands.

The angel shark family is the second most threatened family of sharks and ray in the world. These species are susceptible to the combined impacts of fishing and habitat degradation, due to their coastal location and biology (large, flat-bodied animals with low reproduction rates).

The Canary Islands is the unique stronghold for one species – the Angelshark (Squatina squatina) – where it is found in much greater numbers and is regularly sighted by divers and fishermen.

Here at Manta Diving Lanzarote we are fortunate to have many sightings, especially at this time of year. As the water cools down the angel sharks come shallower and can be seen in as shallow as 4 metres of water! Already this year we have had numerous sightings. The Blue Hole has been a great place to find them!
