Not SCUBA diving in Lanzarote is to really miss the best part of the island. The ocean teems with hundreds of different species of fishes and ocean fauna and it can be safely explored with our instructors on SCUBA. If you have never dived before, the Diveyourway team are the people for you. With highly qualified and very experienced instructors we make your first dive trip safe, enjoyable, knowledgeable and fun. If you are looking for a first time course, try the PADI Discovery course, which in only a few hours will have you diving at a maximum of 12m looking for seahorses and other reclusive marine animals of the coast of Lanzarote. Or get certified with us with either the PADI Scuba diver or PADI Open Water course, and make diving a lifelong pastime. Come and join us at the our dive centre in the Hesperia Hotel in Puerto Calero for your first SCUBA dive, and we ensure to make it an unique and rewarding experience (or even a lifelong addiction!)

If you have never dived before this is where you start, the PADI Discover SCUBA diving
the first permanent certification course that allows dives to 12m with a PADI professional
the independent 18m course that opens up the oceans of the world for exploration
kids from 8 to 10 can discover the fun of diving on the Bubblemaker programme
This is the starting point of your aquatic adventure and a real MUST DO for everyone, the PADI discover scuba diving programme and is designed to get you diving with our instructors virtually straight away. We start the programme with a 40 minute lesson on SCUBA, which covers the history, equipment and the safety rules for diving, and we normally make this as an informal briefing with the staff- there is no exams involved. The next step is into the equipment and down to the swimming pool for a familiarization session with the equipment and to teach you some very basic dive skills. The pool time is used to get you comfortable and relaxed with breathing underwater and the practicality of SCUBA. And then comes the good part, as we head to the ocean and make your first open water dive. The house reef at the hotel is perfect for the first timer, with plenty of different species of fishes and fauna to see as we explore together.
"..this is the start of the adventure, and nearly 99% of people will fall in love with the ocean and diving. The course is designed to be simple and fun, but importantly to get people out into the ocean and exploring ASAP. Always remember that you have an extremely experienced instructor right by your side.. "
The scuba course is a lifetime license that allows you to dive to a maximum depth of 12m under the supervision of a PADI pro (it is not an autonomous qualification). The course is broken down into 3 knowledge development sessions with our instructors, where you learn the theoretical aspect of diving (not as painful as it sounds!), 3 confined training dives in the pool to build dive skills in a safe environment. Finally we conduct 2 open water dives to put all the training into a practical ocean setting. Upon successful completion of the course, the student receives the PADI Scuba Diver certification.
The course takes approximately 9 hours – and is run normally over 2 days, but the schedule we arrange directly with you.
The PADI system is also modulated, so the DSD can apply to the Scuba diver level and then to the full open water diver.
"..the scuba diver was introduced as a stepping stone towards the full open water, with the consideration that people may not have the time to commit to the full course. You can still dive with a PADI pro, and can be upgraded later to the OW certification. .. "
The dive certification to have – the PADI open water diver is the entry level autonomous dive license, which allows you to plan and conduct 18m ocean dives with a dive buddy, and is the world’s most recognized certification.
The course is normally ran over 4 days, and builds knowledge of diving and procedures, the skills training sessions that are conducted in a pool, and 4 open water dives for the final certification. Working closely with our dive instructors we will teach you to dive safely and responsibility, with the ultimate goal of introducing you to a life long enjoyable pastime.
Then all the oceans of the world will become your playground, for exploration and adventure; but make the best choice and be trained by the best instructors on the island.
We can also offer upgrade diver programmes, such as SCUBA diver upgrade, open water referrals and experienced open water courses.
"..This is the card you want in your pocket, a great course that will teach you the fundamentals of diving, motor skills and planning. A rewarding course it also becomes your passport to a lifetime of adventure under the sea, also the course I love to teach the most so sign up today and change your life !.. "
Want to start a great recreation for your kids, well how about SCUBA? The PADI Bubblemaker course is aimed at kids from 8 to 10 years old and is a safe and fun introduction into diving.
The Bubblemaker starts by discussing the background of diving, general dive safety principles and the equipment. Then it is into the pool for a dive, getting the kids used to breathing underwater and how to dive. When relaxed and comfortable we go down to the ocean for a dive and their first introduction into the sub aquatic world, the dive is limited to a maximum of 2m.
A fantastic experience for kids, that not only starts a love for the oceans, but builds responsibility, maturity, decision making and confidence.
"..Kids are NBD – Natural Born Divers, and tend to be more relaxed and comfortable underwater than adults, but naturally parents are very concerned. Diving is an excellent activity for kids and with us we implement the strictest safety levels when diving with them, it’s all about safety and fun. Start your children on the adventure today, put the xbox away and get into a wetsuit ! .. "
