DIVES FOR ALL KINDS OF DIVERS.
We enjoy the privilege of being able to dive in one of the best destinations in Mallorca. The southwest coast offers innumerable immersion points, among which 3 marine reserves stand out: the island of El Toro, the Malgrats Islands and the island of Dragonera. In addition, we have extraordinary dives in caves, vertical cliffs and wrecks. The exceptional visibility, the usual absence of currents and the proximity of the diving spots make most of the destinations accessible to everyone. We have selected 20 dive sites from the closest to our base: 5 minutes away by boat, to the farthest: 30 minutes away. We assure you dives that will not disappoint you.
THIS IS THE DIVING EXCURSION IN ZOEA
From the beginning of the season, on April 1, we organize diving trips every day: at 9:30am, at 11:30am, and at 4:30pm The meeting time is always 30 minutes before the departure of the boat. During this time we do the peperwork and prepare the equipments. Approximately 2 hours after the boat’s departure we are back in port to prepare for the next dive. Normally, we do not decide the dive sites in advance, but depending on the weather conditions, the level of the divers and their preferences, we establish the destinations for that day. Before, during and after the dive you will be accompanied by one of our instructors, who will help you with everything you need and will ensure your safety.
DIVE SPOTS IN MALLORCA
A breath-taking landscape with huge rocks and vertical walls going down to 35 m is the main attraction of this site. During the dive we can find countless small crevices and tunnels where moray eels, octopuses, groupers and scorpion fish find their shelter. Lobsters can frequently be seen in shallower depths than in other sites. This dive can be done many times and every time is different.
The wrecks in “Dique del Oeste” are located in the Bay of Palma. This ship cemetery has a couple of big ships longer than 40 meters, and other smaller ones. They were sank intentionally in the sixties, and the biggest one lays on the seafloor as if it’s still sailing.
This beautiful cove is just 10 minutes boat ride from our dive center and offers a good shelter from the westerlies. The shallow and calm waters, and the pretty landscape make of this place the ideal spot for novel divers and for divers who want to improve their skills.
This beautiful and quiet little cove is worth visiting, for it treasures one of the most diverse dives of this area. A tunnel, a cave, arches and slopes will guide us along this interesting dive site. We start the dive when entering an L-shaped tunnel (25m long) at about 5m of depth, and wide enough to fit several divers at once.
El Toro is our most visited area by far: a marine reserve teeming with life just 10 minutes away from our center by boat.
Six different dive sites that offer a wide variety of dives for both advanced divers and beginners.
The original idea was to rotate the different diving areas of the biggest protected waters of Majorca. During the same year, a new spot in Conejera Island and the wreck of MV Ana Rosa were also opened.
Morro d’en Feliu is a dive very suitable for divers of all levels. Its soft profile at the beginning of the dive makes it very suitable for Open Water divers as well as for those who want to participate in our snorkel excursions.
The Pecio de los Congrios is a unique point of diving in Mallorca. This is probably the most exciting dive we do. It is located next to the island of Dragonera. Divers who enter their waters must have some degree of experience.
This dive site is situated close to Palma Bay in our eastern dive zone. Even though it is outside the El Toro marine reserve, big abundance of life can be observed. Thanks to the proximity to the Palma Bay, smooth currents flow along the rocky bottom bringing nutrients to nurture the marine life that concentrates in this area.
In the Malgrats marine reserve, right at the tip of the biggest of the islands we have this spectacular dive site. The profile starts hight at the cliffs on the top, which abruptly falls and continues underwater in a vertical wall down to 25 meters of depth, where a pile of big boulders hide lots of fish and invertebrates.
It starts at 7 meters, and reaches 25 meters of depth, with a width of around 20 meters. It has two domes with air pockets where you can go up and breathe the cold fresh air inside. The top layer of fresh cold water creates a remarkable halocline and thermocline that forms an area of distorted vision at the interphase, very typical of these phenomenon.
The huge visibility is the main characteristic of the dives in Dragonera, which is not an exception at the dive site of Tramuntana. The currents that go through the area not only clean their waters but also provide the necessary nutrients to sustain the abundant fauna and flora.
