Activities in Spain

Snorkelling

Snorkelling is excellent in both Spain and Morocco.

Diving

Murcia lies in the heart of the Spanish Mediterranean. Its limestone cliffs rise up to an impressive 150 meters above sea level and drop down to 100 meters below. This creates a unique topography, offering a huge variety of dive sites to choose from.

Puerto Mazarron is known as one of the best diving destinations in the Mediterranean. You can dive wrecks, caves and tunnels, shallow reefs, drop offs and archways, which are unforgettable due to a 20 – 40 meter visibility. Dive sites can be reached from shore or a dive boat.

The marine life along the Costa Calida is abundant with a variety of species. This ranges from large schools of barracudas and jacks to small shy seahorses and octopus. If you are lucky, moonfish, eagle rays can be seen. Water temperatures of 25°C in the summer and 15°C in the winter allow all-year-round diving.

We only work with reputable and professional dive centres. Professional dive guides, with excellent local knowledge will show you the best dive spots along the Costa Calida. Licensed instructors (PADI, CMAS, BSAC and more) conduct all diving courses from beginner upward as well as specialties and professional levels. All necessary equipment including tanks and weights can be hired and you will be supplied with a comprehensive dive site maps.
