Puerto Moro

Puerto Moro is a great dive site in the north of Lanzarote. Every diver that wants to explore this ”off-road” situated dive site has to be a little bit adventurous to “conquer” the entrance and exit. A little rock scramble is necessary to enter or exit the water, and that´s why it is a dive site for experienced or well trained divers.

Once underwater however, you are rewarded for your efforts with some of the most beautiful caves, tunnels and lava tubes on Lanzarote.

The site also offers piste like slopes whose depth looks endless yet plays host to angle sharks and a variety of rays. A small tunnel from 8m to 15m brimmed with shrimps, fork beards and cardinal fish. The site also offers lobster, spiny spider crab, octopus, cuttlefish and a whole host of fish species.

puerto-moro-lava-tubeThis expedition dive takes experienced divers to the lava tube. This is a lava tunnel which starts at about 10m and has exits at 20m and 30m. There are many small opening which makes for some atmospheric photography. The tube is home to many thousands of shrimp, with rays and morays being occasional visitors. Large stretches of the tunnel have no clear route to the surface so the lava tube it not for the faint hearted.
