Boat dives on Gran Canaria

The wrecks of Mogán...

The first of the two wrecks sunk by the Yellow Submarine company, lying only minutes away from Puerto Mogan and the dive centre in Taurito. This wreck has been down since the early 1990’s and time has taken its toll with the many storms we have experienced in those years. However the wreck is bursting with life and has its resident massive shoal of Roncadors and Barracuda as well as the many Trumpet fish, Damsel and Puffers that go about their business daily. On occasion Canarian lobster set up camp and Moray Eels and Octopus pop out of the tangled wreck. In mid water you will see Sardine darting back and forth and Amberjack chasing them. Turtle, large Rays and even visit from Manta Ray and Wahoo have graced the water in and around this lovely wreck.
There are two wrecks sunk at Mogán, they were both sunk for the Submarine tours, which leave from Mogán Harbour. The old wreck is now broken up, but the new one is a large fishing vessel and they are both at a depth of 19m. They are covered in marine life as the Submarine tour feeds the fish over the wrecks to attract them for the tourists. The marine life has everything possible in large numbers and we try to time the dive so that the Submarine is there at the same time. 
The wreck of the Cermona II lies 60 meters away from the Alagranza and was sunk in March 2002! Time has passed and the Cermona II has settled in perfectly to her surroundings. Like her underwater sister ship, Roncadors, Barracuda and Trumpet fish have made their home in the twisted mental that once formed her hull. Sea Bream overlook both wrecks and if your are lucky the Yellow Submarine may be doing a trip around the wrecks, full of inquisitive tourist snapping photos of the diver who I am sure, they think are all part of the excursion. This is an ideal dive for all level of scuba diver and they are a perfect introduction to Wreck Diving. We have, over the years made a detailed Specialty Course for Wreck diving using both. (BOAT DIVE -SURCHARGE € 5,-)

El Perchel...

...this dive is a super relaxing dive, and has become a personal favorite to staff and customers alike for its easy drift taking you at the rocky edge of the sand which hides an abundance of Angel Shark, Common, Eagle, Bat and Butterfly Rays and as well as large shoals of Roncador, baby Barracuda, Sardine and Pandora drifting along side you. As you weave in and out of the large rock formations, you can spot large colourful Anomie and cleaner shrimp.  The Eel Garden sits a few meters out on the sand and rays can be seen swimming by out in the blue. Depending on the direction of the current we either start or finish at the Trumpetfish Cave, gaining it name from the large amount of Trumpet fish who hang motionless at the mouth of this cave.The maximum depth is 17m. 

Pasito Blanco

...this dive site features a variety of ledges and rock plateaus that hold a multitude of fish and a sandy bottom where Rays and Angle Sharks are a common occurrence. There is also a presence of Roncador grunts and enormous Barracuda not forgetting the many Moray Eels, Tiger, Bull Nose and Black who rest under the over hangs. This is a favorite dive site for both new visitors and regular clients of the dive centre, due to the extended dive time and concentration of marine life. It is also one of the few sites boasting a high concentration of soft Corals on the Eastern end of the reef. Maximum depth 20m.

.... (formerly Solaris) is a 110 meter long super wreck off the coast of Gran Canaria. The ship sank half an hour after leaving the port of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria on 14 July 1986.
