Tenerife is the largest and most populated island in the Canarian Archipelago, Spain. It is located in the Atlantic Ocean and belongs to the province of Santa-Cruz-de-Tenerife with the administrative centre in the same city. Cave, technical and recreational diving is highly developed in this region. If you are a fan of turtles, you should go to the village of El Puertito in the South of the island. Turtles are not afraid of people, and you can swim close enough to them to observe their behaviour. Puertito bay has no currents. Diving is possible both from the shore and off a boat.
Due to the mild climate, diving in Tenerife is possible all year round, but the most comfortable month is September. The air temperature at this time is +27 C, and the water warms up to +25 C. In winter, the probability of precipitation increases, especially in the Northern part of the island.
The Marazul dive site is located near the old banana farm. While exploring its underwater tunnels, you will swim by marine angelfish and toothy barracudas. For wreck diving, you should go to the sunken ship "El Meridian". This World War II minesweeper has now become an artificial reef.
