El Cabron

El Cabron is the best known and best loved of the dive sites around Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands. Located in the center of the future Arinaga Marine Reserve, the dive site is protected from boat traffic and fishing. You can enjoy several dives here as the site offers 8 dives with 4 different entry points.

 
At 12m, you'll glide along a rocky plateau before dropping down to 23m along a coral covered wall. You'll come across stingrays, parrotfish, groupers, rainbow wrasse, and if your lucky you may spot an angel shark which is one of the Canary Islands iconic species. You wont know where to turn next!
 
The marine life is not the only attraction here at El Cabron, the varied formations of arches and caves, tunnels and corals will be sure to impress more advanced divers.
 
If you're only going to dive once in Gran Canaria, then do it at El Cabron!
