Abades is approximately 35 mins away by road from one·two·dive. The dive site with a maximum depth of 10m is reached from the shore and is located inside a protected marine park. It’s also one of the best spots for snorkeling with a shallow reef with mostly excellent visibility and thousands of fish at about 6m. We can find moray eels, octopus and stingrays on the sandy bottom at 10-12m depth. It’s an excellent dive site to check your equipment and the amount of weights you will be using for the safari. Montaña Amarilla is approximately 25 mins by road from one·two·dive. The dive site, aka Yellow Mountain is a shore dive into a protected marine park with nice variations in the landscape. The dive site has a maximum depth of 18m. In the rocky area we can find cracks with octopus and moray eels. In the sandy parts we can find cuttlefish, garden eels and stingrays. Around the rocks we find overhangs and swimthroughs.

10 days Discover Tenerife Diving Safari
The program is very similar to the 8 day Safari. Here is an example of the extra days.
We will make two dives from a boat towards Cueva de las Morenas and El Bufadero
We will pick you up at 8:15 to drive to the port of Las Galletas.
The Cueva de las Morenas is one of the most classic ! It is also known as the cave of Juanito or Shrimp Cave. We will anchor at a rocky platform about 18 meters deep. From there, there is a wall vertically down to 30 meters resulting in a sandy bottom inhabited by Garden Eels. On the same wall, we find several species of moray eels also parrot fish, zebra breams and groupers. More experienced divers can visit the Virgin and dolphin tribute to Jacques Cousteau, submerged about 35 and 38 meters respectively and placed there by the World Association of Silence.
El Bufadero is one of the spots where some dive centres feed the stingrays. Here we can find all different species of stingrays, turtles, moray eels and plenty of marine life that gets attracted for a free and easy snack. It sits on a rocky bottom at about 10 meters deep which then falls gently to 21 m. In this place much wildlife is concentrated, highlighting a bank of grunts, blacksmiths, angelfish, barracudas, stingrays and mullets. It is recommended to visit the shallow area as, on the side (to 4 meters Depth) are two small caves.
On our last day, we will do only one dive from a boat.
Pick up time is at 10:30am to drive to the port of Las Galletas.
Los Chuchos aka “The Stingrays” is located in the South of the Island with a maximum depth of around 20 meters. It used to be a stop for submarine excursions. They made a show of feeding sea animals and now some divers still do feed the fish. Here we can find many Stingrays, Octopus, Breams, Drums, Wrasse and Barracuda. A bit deeper in the seabed you can also visit a small sunken boat.
After the dive at around 1pm, we will drive you back to your hotel.
