Diving in El Hierro - Canary Islands

The magnificent island of El Hierro is the smallest of the Canary Islands and the furthest from the coasts of Morocco. This island, of volcanic origin, has experienced numerous eruptions that have given it its particular triangular shape over millennia. This wild island, the least populated of the Canaries, is a haven of peace for travellers in search of a quiet and exotic place. The island has been recognised as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO since 2000 and has been able to use the abundant renewable energies available to become autonomous in terms of energy. But what about diving?

El Hierro is a place admired for the clarity of its waters, its irregular underwater landscapes and the possibility of encountering large pelagics such as devil's rays and sharks. The village of La Restinga is the area with the highest density of diving centres. It has become the gateway to the "Mar de las Calmas" marine reserve and its magnificent dive sites. You can admire its seabed where the volcanic lava has created genuine furrows, formed by sumptuous caves and arches around which a very rich fauna and flora has been established. The underwater mountain "El Bajon" is often considered by divers as the most spectacular dive site in El Hierro. If you have the opportunity to dive in the Canary Islands, don't miss this destination.

When to go diving in El Hierro?

To get to El Hierro, the best time is undoubtedly from June to October. However, the temperatures remain pleasant outside this period thanks to the warm and dry climate. The Mar de las Calmas Marine Reserve, on the other hand, is open all year round for diving.

Diving conditions

Visibility is excellent in this part of the Canary Islands. It has more or less 30 meters of visibility. 

The currents are not very strong in the marine reserve and you can dive without fear.

Required diving levels: There are more than thirty dive sites. You will find without difficulty a challenge that fits your level and certification. The most experienced diver will be able to discover the many caves or explore the depths of these famous dive sites. 

The water temperature varies from 21° C to 24°C.

What to see while diving?

You will come across many species during your dives. The most common are groupers, lemon fish, octopus, and also crustaceans. However, if you look carefully, you can see a lot of flatfish and even magnificent seahorses. With luck, you can observe the devil's manta, turtles and even sharks: the blue shark, hammerhead sharks, tiger sharks and even dive with whale sharks. Do not dream too much, as the encounter with the last specimen was seen there in 1999. The bottom consists of magnificent sponges, black and yellow corals that crawl on soil fertilized by dry lava. Get ready to dive!

How to get there:

From the mainland you can arrive from almost any airport, the ideal is to choose TENERIFE NORTE as the final destination, flying companies such as Air Europa, Ryanair and Iberia or Iberia Express. Once you have taken that flight you must take another local flight, from TENERIFE NORTE to EL HIERRO, in this case you can choose either BINTER CANARIAS or CANARY FLY, the best option is to take both flights separately to get the best price, being careful to leave at least 2 hours of scale between the two flights.

- We can help you in everything you need with the organization of your trip, since our expert in trips knows very well this destination when working as PADI Course Director in El Bajon. Also ask about possible extensions to Las Palmas or Tenerife.

- It is recommended to rent a car, previously and online, to pick it up at the airport, the prices are very low and is the best way to get from the airport to LA RESTINGA (50min by car approx.) Companies with good cars and very good price (it is not necessary to leave deposit or credit card as the rental includes comprehensive insurance) PLUSCAR or CICAR
