Snorkeling and Freediving

Snorkeling Trips

The South of Gran Canaria offers a great snorkeling experience. Scuba Sur Diving Gran Canaria offers snorkeling trips to different locations close to the shore. For all snorkeling trips, we will provide you with all the gear you need to make it a great experience and we make sure we have an experienced guide in the water. He will show you around the site and will offer you all the support you require. So if you never snorkeled before, this is a great opportunity to get into it and start discovering the great underwater world.

 

Freediving

If you are looking for something a bit more challenging, our Freediving offer might be something for you.

Freediving is all about  discipline and control. Exploring the underwater world at your own pace and staying down as long as your breath allows is a great experience. By following the Freediver course we will teach you the right techniques how to do this is a safe and controlled matter. Please note you do not need to be an athlete, but some good physical condition is required.

Scuba Sur Diving Gran Canaria provides Freediving every Tuesday and Wednesday. Please contact our centre to check availability. On demand and depending on availability, we can organize Freediving on other days.
