Scuba diving in Tenerife is quite unique. The underwater environment dramatically reflects the volcanic nature of the island, with many caves and deep, craggy canyons to explore.
There is even a shipwreck called El Condesito, 3kms offshore from Las Galletas harbour. With professional guidance from one of Tenerife´s excellent dive centres, the top levels of the wreck can be safely explored.
