Scuba Diving on the Costa Blanca coast around Calpe is possible all year around. It offers a variety of affordable rates. From personal experience we recommend Les Basetes Dive Centre. They offer scuba diving, boat trips, night dives, try dives and much more. Scuba diving in Spain also includes PADI training from Open Water to Dive Master, SeaDoo under water scooters and under water video equipment with the latest diving equipment. All courses are available in English, Spanish, German, Dutch, Belgian and French.
Underwater visibility varies with the weather conditions, usually 7 to 30 metres / 26 to 98 feet but sometimes exceeding 30 metres / 100 feet. Water temperatures are quite comfortable ranging from 13° to 26° C / 56° to 80° F.
Popular dives include:
Los Arcos, a series of arches and tunnels created by huge rocks that have fallen from the Penon
Moraira, a great wall dive full of interest
Cueva de los Arcos (Cumbre del Sol), freshwater pours out from a cave creating an unusal affect, the so-called 'halocline' effect which has a rather unusual effect on sea fish!"
