Detailed description

Snorkeling on Gran Canaria - guided tour at Playa de las Canteras

Playa de las Canteras is one of the most popular beaches in Gran Canaria. Three kilometres of beautiful coastline with golden sand and mostly mirror-smooth water with temperatures of at least 20 degrees. Ideal for families with children, sea swimmers and water sports enthusiasts. And also under the water surface this district in the north of the island has its peculiarities. The sheltered location behind the large reef "La Barra" running parallel to the beach gives many exotic animals and plants an ideal habitat that you can discover while snorkelling on Gran Canaria.

At the side of an experienced guide you will swim off Las Palmas for about 1.5 hours and take a close look at the colourful life in the Atlantic. You will receive the complete equipment from wetsuits and diving goggles to snorkels and have a companion at your side who also knows the history, geology and biology of this unique marine biotope very well. Together with him you can admire and determine the fish and plants that come into your field of vision on this guided tour off Las Palmas.

Children from the age of 8 years can participate in the snorkeling excursion accompanied by an adult. No previous knowledge is required for snorkelling in Gran Canaria, but children should be able to swim. If you want to make your underwater experience on Gran Canaria even more adventurous, book the night tour. This starts in the evening hours and ends shortly before midnight. Snorkeling in the dark is a whole new experience. The underwater area is illuminated with a light beam so that you can observe the nocturnal inhabitants of the sea.

The pleasure of snorkelling and diving in Gran Canaria comes from being surrounded by so much water with enviable visibility depths. With more than 200 kilometres of coastline, there are also wonderful spots everywhere that are suitable for water sports and welcome visitors with a wealth of things to see. Whether it is the lush sea meadows or the colourful fish that hunt over the seabed. Snorkelling in Gran Canaria is a great way to get a first impression of the fascinating underwater world without a diving licence.


Valid on the reserved day or for 12 months after date of purchase if no date has been selected. You will receive the tour operator's details with the purchased ticket. Attention: reservation is required! The reservation can be made through sunbonoo as part of the booking process or later by contacting the tour operator directly via phone or email.

« at night the most! »

I never had the experience of going out at Night to the Sea, on the one hand it gives a little fear but it was excellent in everything!

« Completely different experience »

It is a very different experience at night to snorkel and therefore more exciting than the '' normal '' snorkeling during the day.

« Ganz andere Erfahrung »

Es ist mal eine ganz andere Erfahrung nachts zu schnorcheln und dadurch auch spannender als das ''normale'' Schnorcheln am Tag.
