Guided dives at Plàncton!

We offer unhurried leisurely diving activities at Plàncton Diving so you can enjoy the sea to the fullest! We give each client the time you need and we adapt our outings to your needs so that you always feel welcome, confident and relaxed. 

What happens on a guided dive?

Every outing begins with a 10-minute marine biology briefing where we talk about the creatures we might see or other things going on at this time of year: reproduction, appearance of different species… We will also explain the key points about diving and our safety rules. We then prepare the equipment and go to the beach or boat to get ready for your guided dive. Every day, every outing, is different: fish, octopus, starfish… every creature moves and goes about their daily life meaning every dive can produce a surprise. Thanks to our marine biologist and oceanographer diving guides, you won’t miss anything as they will be on hand to point out and tell you about all the wildlife and plants you will see as well as other curiosities about our coastline.

If you have very little experience diving, you can contract an individual private guide just for you at an extra cost. If you feel rusty, perhaps you should try our Scuba Skills Update SSI course to refresh your skills and ensure you dive with more confidence and safety. 

After the outing, we can go over what you have just seen by looking at the animal and plant information guides we have at the centre. Here you can also relax in our chill-out zone and chat about your experience over a cool drink and snacks. 

Dive times (pre-booking is essential): 9.00, 12.00, and 15.30 in peak season. We also sometimes offer night-time dives. Check out our web page or social networks (Facebook and Instagram) for our weekly schedule.

Prices: €35 diving from a boat; €28 from the shore. If you book in for a second dive, the fees drop to €28 and €25 respectively.
