From the barren volcanic landscape of Lanzarote, a descent of only a few metres on SCUBA into the crystal blue ocean brings a staggering change of ecosystem, to one of an extremely rich fusion of marine fauna, fishes and mammals. The coast around the island teems with life, abundant tropical and temperate fishes, rays, pelagic predators like tuna, angel sharks, hard and soft corals, sea stars, anemones: from the smallest seahorse to the largest whales are waiting to be discovered in these waters.
Join the Diveyourway Lanzarote team and explore the best diving sites in Puerto Calero, Puerto del Carmen, Mala and the island of Los Lobos with the true SCUBA diving professionals. Our PADI dive centre is based in Puerto Calero at the Hesperia Hotel, but we here at Diveyourway offer free transfers from villa's and hotels throughout Lanzarote to our SCUBA divers.

It's June, so that means that there are plenty of Angel Sharks around at the moment. When the water cools the females return to the shallows to give birth. Check out the great video that Ilya took last year of a small file fish surviving the mouth of the shark! [Ilya has also found our first seahorse of the season hanging out by the Cathedral dive site]. We have near perfect dive conditions, with hot sunny days and calm seas with the ocean temperature at the moment of 18°c.
"Angel sharks are sharks in the genus Squatina, which are unusual in having flattened bodies and broad pectoral fins that give them a strong resemblance to rays. Twenty-three species are known to exist in the genus, which is the only one in its family, Squatinidae, and order Squatiniformes. They occur worldwide in temperate and tropical seas. Most species inhabit shallow temperate or tropical seas, but one species inhabits deeper water, down to 1,300 m (4,300 ft)".
Here is Ilya's great "shark attack" video he made last year. The Angel Shark bury themselves into the sand to ambush its prey and you’ll see on the video that when disturbed this shark took the chance to snatch a passing file fish. However, the file fish has a large spine protruding from its back that makes it a little bit unpalatable to the shark, and he is spat out back into the ocean to survive another day. A good day for the little guys!
Congratulations to Eduardo who on Sunday (1st June 2014) made the SANTI drysuit course with Ilya. It was the first DRY dive for him and he was completely converted to the use of the suit, great benefits even in temperate water for the DRY dive philosophy. Unfortunately Eduardo will have to wait for 6 weeks while SANTI custom make his suit before his next dive at Playa Chica.
