Fuerteventura Dive Sites - Fuerteventura - Morro Jable, Canary Islands

Directly by the beautiful beach,where the dive centre is located, which is covered in sand dunes, you find the house reef which is 3 to 8 metres deep and perfect for night dives and open water training dives.

The boat trips start - depending on the distance to the dive site - at 08:30 h or 09:00 h, respectively. A variety of different local dive sites are accessible, with a travelling time of 10 to 30 minutes. An exception is the dive site "Salinas" which is located South of the airport and known to be one of the most beautiful diving areas in Fuerteventura. Because of the long travelling time of 50 minutes, there is only a  2 tank dive option for this site.
