Dive sites

El Calamareo

Depth: 12 - 20 metres
One of the most famous dive sites of Fuerteventura.
It is situated alongside the reef that stretches form Corralejo (Fuerteventura) towards Lobos Island and then turns north to Playa Blanca in Lanzarote. We anchor 12 metres deep and to the North side of the anchor is a drop of that reaches another 10 metres deeper. Between the cracks and under the overhangs we can spot stingrays, angel shark, eagle rays, giant scorpion fish,... Photographers especially like the field of red sea fan and the many colored anemone. In a large cavern that stretches alongside the reef, we observe big Canary lobster, forkbeard and many other species that don't like the daylight very much. While this site is not so deep, it's suited for all levels.

El Puente

Depth: 7 - 12 metres
El Puente is the highlight of an area between Fuerteventura and Lobos called los Becerros. Ragged Lava formations with caverns, canyons, overhangs and a spectacular natural bridge. Easy to dive, it is really good fun to dive over,under and around all these formations. While it is very shallow, it is suitable for all Divers. Sometimes we notice a slight current and when big swells roll in it’s impossible to dive the area. In only 7 to 12 metres of depth we can spot Guelly jack, amberjack, big zebra bream ,… Hidden between the rocks you might see the nice golden spotted snake eel. Looks like a snake but is completely harmless.

La Carrera

Depth: 16 metres
On the east side of Lobos Island, we find ‘la Carrera’, a white Sandy bottom, circuited by black volcanic rocks, little caverns and overhangs, in a depth that ranges from 12 to 15 metres. The contrast of the white sand, black rock and the sun playing in the crystal clear water makes for one of the most beloved dive sites in the area. In the sand, we look for stingrays and sleeping angel sharks. Over our heads are big shoals of smaller fish like damselfish, saddled bream and baracuda patiently circling and waiting for the perfect moment to strike. Under the overhangs are trumpet fish, glasseye and scorpionfish.

Las Agujas

Depth: 7 - 12 metres
Ragged/jagged Lava formation with Canyons, overhangs and swimthroughs in7 to 12 metres of depth. Parrotsfish, red mullet, cow bream, octopus and sometimes huge stingrays are the most common species. Shallow and easy to dive, this site is suitable for all divers. Even very experienced Divers have fun squeezing through the cuts and cracks in the rocks.

Las Anclas

Depth: 19- 27 metres
On this dive, we have to dive straight down to 18 meters to join the top of the reef and then follow the wall to reach the bottom at 25 metres. This site is called "Las Anclas" because of the two giant Antique anchors we find on our way. In the blue, shoals of sardines with tuna and amberjacks hunting them and underneath stingrays, Eagle rays, electric rays and from time to time the most gracious of rays, the duckbill ray. Under the rocks and between the cracks, we find a big variety of morray eels, scorpionfish and crabs. Dive only suited for advanced Divers. Dive only suited for advanced Divers. Diving with nitrox, you can ad up to 25 minutes to your non decompression limit.

Los Becerros

Depth: 7 - 12 metres
In the middle of the channel between Fuerteventura and Lobos, lay los Becerros, an extensive area with different dive sites. Ragged lava-rock formations with caverns, overhangs and canyons, where a diver can spend hours looking in the cuts and cracks in the rocks and swim over, under and through all these formations. This site is very shallow, and therefore suited for all levels. In only 10 metres of depth, we can see Parrotfish, pufferfish, scorpionfish, great zebra bream, and under the rocks big stingrays rest and allow Divers to come fairly close. Loved by photographers because of its great light due to the shallow depth.

El Bajón del Río

Depth: 14- 18 metres
One of the most famous dive sites of Fuerteventura.
A reef formed by three mushroom-shaped lava rock formations rising from the sandy bottom. Over the last centuries the currents and waves have heavily eroded these formations, giving them the spectacular and unique shapes they have today. The combination of the many schools of fish and the play of light between the many hollows in the rock formations make this dive site one of the most beautiful in Europe. Under the mushrooms we find groupers, bream, jacks, bream, roosters and above them shoals of barracuda and amberjacks hunting the omnipresent sardines.
Depth from 14 to 18m. Due to the strong currents here, it is not always possible to dive in the Bajón.

El Faro de Lobos

Depth: 27- 32 metres
Characteristics: In front of the lighthouse of the island of Lobos there is a reef with a depth of 27 to 32m. If we dive from north to south along the reef we will find large groupers, jacks and sometimes huge shoals of abbots. Photography enthusiasts can enjoy a field of gorgonians a little further north. Due to the depth, this dive is "reserved" for experienced divers only, minimum AOWD. The use of Nitrox is recommended. Attention to the currents, they can be very strong.

Fafo – Secret Cave

Depth: 23 - 32 metres
On the same reef as ' Calamareo', only a bit closer to Lanzarote and Lobos Island, lays a spectacular cave. We anchor at 23 metres of depth, and from there dive down a narrow gorge that leads us into a big archway, like the entrance of a cathedral. We dive alongside the reef and look into the blue for bonito,amberjack or big barracuda. Under us, over the sand glide the Eagle rays as gracious as ever. Only suited for advanced Divers. Use of nitrox strongly recommended. The fun is over much too quickly if you dive on air!

La Baja de Luis

Depth: 10 - 14 metres
Characteristics: Somewhat to the west of Marrajo is Baja de Luis.
A rock that rises from the sandy soil to a depth of 10-14m. The long erosion suffered over the centuries gives rise to spectacular shapes. Under the many rocky ledges there are lots of small groupers that let us get very close to them. Parrotfish, bream and nodibranchs can also be seen. Both beginners and experienced divers are at ease at this dive site.

La Lagunita

Depth: 20 - 25 metres
Characteristics: A little further on, about 20 minutes by boat, to the east of Lobos is "La Lagunita". Although the journey to get here is a little longer, it is well worth it. In a small reef with a depth of 20 to 25m you will find a large number of different fish in a short distance. Thousands of fulas, grunts, bream and salema. And of course, this is the place to hunt! Barracudas, abbots and occasionally wahoo of up to 2 metres offer a real spectacle. Not to forget to mention the groupers in the small caves. They are rarely to be found as big as the ones you can see here. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

Marrajo

Depth: 7 - 9 metres
Characteristics:Very close to Lobos, it is the right place for beginners.  Rock formations at 7-9m depth, sheltered from wind and waves. Although it is shallow, it is frequented by a large number of fish. Jacks, bream and often barracudas.
A beginner diver could wish for nothing more! It is also appreciated by photographers because of the excellent luminosity due to the shallow depth.
