Located 100 miles from the northwestern coast of Africa, the Canary Islands offer a warm climate, crystal waters and calm seas all year round.
Due to the location there are species from Africa, the Atlantic, the Mediterranean and the Caribean, which turns out into a incredibly special marine bio-diversity. All together makes Gran Canaria a top diving destination with endless possibilities.
