Locations for scuba diving in Spain

Diving conditions

The temperature of the water in Spain reaches between 12°C in winter and 25°C in the summer, so the diving season lasts here almost all year round. And there is a number of places to dive. The sea depths conceal dozens of wrecks from different eras: the remains of the ship from the ancient times near Majorca, the wreck of the medieval merchant ship, The Column, and two ships sunk during World War 2.
The Canary Islands are characterized by unique volcanic sculpture, with many mysterious tunnels and nooks, and the water, famous for its exceptional transparency, only encourages you to see them with your own eyes.
The Spanish waters are vibrant with life. You can come across crabs and octopus. There also occur nudibranches in low depths. Warm, colourful gorgonians lazily heave in the waters of the Mediterranean. Numerous anemone species live in symbiosis with small fish and shrimp. It is not rare to catch a glimpse of the flowing eagle ray, barracuda or fall into a tuna schooling. In many places there also appear blue sharks.

I’ve been diving for almost 10 years. The underwater world won my heart quite quickly. From the very beginning I wanted to be a good diver and partner, so I kept practising until I got a Master Scuba Diver PADI degree. I dive in hot and cold waters around the world. The thing I like most about diving is the sense of weightlessness and possibility to dive in the depths. I’m not too demanding when it comes to the landscapes, although I do enjoy their diversity, so I like diving in different places and conditions.
