Playa Blanca Dive Sites

We offer guided dives to Playa Blanca’s dive sites for certified divers. We have a 2 tank boat dive on Wednesdays and Saturdays (8:00-14:00) or single tank boat dives to the underwater museum in the afternoon on request (13:30-17:00)

 

Come diving with us and explore the amazing sculptures created by artist Jason deCaires Taylor at the Museo Atlantico. Europe’s first underwater museum! Lanzarote’s newest and most unique dive site in Playa Blanca – a must dive for all divers!

The Museo Atlantico is an underwater museum that was created by Jason, aiming to create a strong visual dialogue between art and nature. Throughout the design process conservation was at the front of his mind. For this reason he wanted to create an artificial reef on a large scale. Since the first sculptures were installed in March 2016 the marine life has increased in diversity by over 200%! The underwater museum is now home to large shoals of barracuda, sardines and axillary seabream. Now there are regular sightings of angel sharks, rays and triggerfish. Along with octopus and moray eels which can be found living inside the sculptures.

Las Coloradas is a 10 minute boat ride from the Marina Rubicon in Playa Blanca and the closest dive site to the underwater museum. This dive site has benefited from the new artificial reef. The marine life has become attracted to the sculptures and has overflowed onto the Coloradas Reef. There are 2 attractions to this reef. Firstly all the overhangs, where you can find anemones and rays hiding away, and an awesome swim through as well. The topography is stunning and completely different to Playa Chica. Then the other side is the endless white sand where you can find the angel sharks and rays hanging out!
