The underwater world of the Atlantic Ocean

The Atlantic Ocean surrounding the Canaries provides temperatures of between 18° – 25° C and perfect conditions to dive the whole year round. With its variety of species, from smallest animals up to big fish (like angel sharks or Atlantic rays) and marvelous colourful plant species it ensures diverse and interesting things to see for everybody. Typical for Lanzarote are also the numerous rock formations under the surface, which sometimes look man-made. Formed by solidified lava there are many caves, tunnels, canyons etc. which let each dive become a special one.

For all those that are interessted, Wikipedia offers a lot of information about the Atlantic Ocean
