Scuba Travel now offering dive holidays to Lanzarote and other great deals




Scuba Travel new logoHere are the latest offers from UK-based dive tour operator Scuba Travel:

Dive Lanzarote from £570 inc flights

Scuba Travel has announced it is now working with North Diving in Lanzarote.

North Diving Lanzarote is the only dive centre in the north of the island, which means guaranteed unspoilt and uncrowded dive sites. Diving the northern dive sites is an adventurous experience with a huge amount to discover underwater. The lava formations, arches, caverns, drop offs and swim throughs are simply amazing. There are wrecks, schooling fish and even angel sharks.

So if you are looking for somewhere new to escape for a long weekend’s diving or fancy making a week out of it close to home, it’s time to take the plunge in Lanzarote.

Arrieta is far away from the mass tourism sometimes associated with Lanzarote and so there are no hotels. However there are a large range of fully equipped apartments, all around a 5 minute walk from the dive centre. Scuba Travel have picked just a few of the best in the region to offer you complete choice. So if you a single diver, buddy pair or group, talk to Scuba Travel and they can help you select your ideal base. If you prefer, the closest hotels are 20mins away which Scuba Travel can also arrange with transfers
