Blue Water Diving is pleased to announce the Canarian Government is promoting an underwater photography contest for scuba diving Gran Canaria.

The competition has been set for all the islands, so we are here to promote Gran Canaria and the underwater wonders that it has available.

Gran Canarian Angel Sharks

As we see so many Angel Sharks whilst we dive in the Atlantic Ocean, around the coastline of Gran Canaria, here are a few facts about the amazing creatures we see. The Angelsharks are flat-bodied sharks, very ray-like. They bury themselves in the sand or mud with only the eyes and part of the top of the body exposed. They have a blunt snout and are camouflaged to blend into the sand and rocks of the ocean bed. They have long, wide fins that look like wings, giving it its name. It is also known as the monk shark, sand devil, and monkfish. Angelsharks are frequently caught for food.
