Try Scuba Diving in Lanzarote

The best way to try scuba diving for the first time, without signing up to a full course! Enjoy your first unforgettable breaths underwater and experience the magic of scuba diving!

Try scuba - 1 dive package

2 hours (13:30-15:30)

Experience the thrill of scuba diving in only 2 hours and earn the SSI Try Scuba recognition card! Taking place at Playa Chica, you will get to explore the beauty of the underwater world here in Lanzarote under the direct supervision of your diving instructor.

Our try dives are perfect for your 1st time diving. They are done directly from the beach – meaning you do not have to worry about getting on/off a boat or sea sickness! We keep our groups small to ensure that everyone has a great time underwater!

During your Try Scuba Dive, your instructor will give you a detailed briefing so you know exactly what to expect. We will then find a wetsuit, mask, fins and boots that fit you. We will then stroll down to Playa Chica where we will put the equipment on and walk into waist deep water. We will practice the breathing and when you are comfortable we will go underneath the water where we will practice 3 skills with you. We will then go for a dive to 5 metres for 30-40 minutes. Along the way we will stop off along the way and see the different fish Playa Chica has to offer. You may see sea bream, parrotfish, damselfish, flounders, ornate wrasse.

Scuba diving for the first time was an exhilarating experience, which was made even better by the amazing instructors guiding every step. Their expertise and patience eased any nervousness, allowing me to fully enjoy the underwater world. From explaining equipment to ensuring safety protocols. It was an unforgettable adventure, thanks to their skillful guidance. Planning to return in the future!

Unforgettable experience! For a first dive with my daughter, the instructor Victor was excellent, very educational, in a good mood and also with explanations in French. We recommend this diving center.
Cyril Dumartin
Thanks to Victor for the amazing try dive. I took the beginner’s session and it was such a breeze. Totally enjoyed the experience. Victor was really great as an instructor. I’m afraid of the sea but he made it sound so safe and easy. Can’t wait to take a full course to get certified.
