What you'll do

You will get very excited and impressed with this fun and interesting activity of practicing snorkelling at Las Canteras beach and be delighted by its seabed. Las Canteras is a beautiful beach in the middle of the city that every local people loves because of its "barra" (long rock along the beach that makes it unique) and the marine life where you can find octopus, sargos, pompanos, limpets, crabs, starfish and more.
You will reach a maximum depth of 5 meters and be immersed under the water for almost one hour and one hour and a half. I will give you small boards/cards that will help you to identify faster the different sorts of fishes. You will also have all the necessary equipment at your disposal and we will guide you alongside all the time.
The meeting time will depend on the tides and weather conditions, so 10:00 hours is just an orientation, depends on the day. I will confirm you by chat.

Hello! I am Cristina and I deliver local and authentic experiences to travellers around Canary Islands. In this tour, I partnered with Juan Carlos and Juana María Pérez, who are truly marine lovers. They know every single sort of fish and will be happy to show you as much as you will find on your way. They are PADI and FEDAS instructors and have more than 10 years experience and love to share their passion with everyone.
They will go together with you and help you identify what you can reach to see under water in this beautiful urban beach.

The instructor his English was not that good. But he tried very hard and just as he says: under water you can't talk, so it doesn't matter! He had a close eye on us and we felt very safe. We had a great snorkeling experience and would recommend this experience for sure!

It was a really nice experience and Cristina is a very friendly guide. I felt very well looked after and all the snorkel equipment worked perfectly. If you want to learn a lot about the local marine life on this experience, it's better if you can speak Spanish.

Awesome experience. I recommend it. You get to snorkel in a neoprene suit so water temperature is not an issue. You get to see pretty yellow corals, fish of all kinds, sea urchins in very colorful environments. It’s fun. Go for it.

You have to book this trip I can't believe what is swimming around in the water off Playa de Las Canteras! I must have seen at least 30 species of fish, there was this yellow tube coral, a cuttlefish hiding in the rock, and a weird red centipede thing. It was an epic adventure and Cristina was an amazing guide, so thoughtful and warm. I'm so glad I did this before the end of my Gran Canaria trip! Great way to wrap up my time in the Canary Islands.

Obwohl ich die Tage des Termins verbummelt habe, waren alle sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Ich konnte 2 Tage später am schnorcheln teilnehmen. Gott sei Dank! Yemi hat mich gut eingewiesen und trotz Sprachbarriere war es für mich kein Problem, ihren Anweisungen zu folgen. Auch hatte uch immer das Gefühl, sie schaut nach mir und ich habe mich sehr sicher gefühlt. Auch hatte sie einen guten Blick für die Unterwasserwelt und ich bekamm einen tollen Einblick. Der Oktopus zum Beispiel hätte ich alleine nie gesehen und es war sehr faszinierend. Insgesamt ein gelungenes Unternehmen, das Geld wert. Sehr zu empfehlen.
