Canary islands photo contest

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.

Scuba Diving Gran Canaria hosts some amazing dive sites, and we have some great artificial reefs and wrecks to dive on, which make a great platform for some fantastic photos.

Keeping Amadores Beach Clean

As part of being a Padi Diving Centre each year its the dive centres responsibility to plan, promote and organise a beach clean up, with the Padi Project Aware Team. In 2018 Blue Water Diving adopted Amadores Beach as our designated area. Amadores is a man made beach which is nestled inbetween Puerto Mogan and Puerto Rico. Amadres beach was built in 2002 with crushed coral sand imported from the Carribean. The bay has grown in marine life and plants grow from the rocks, which has formed it as a nursery for barracuda, angel sharks, sea wrasse, cuttlefish, squid, damzels, sardines…. Adult stingrays, eagle rays and angel sharks can be found here.
