About Northdiving Lanzarote

Northdiving Lanzarote is the only dive centre in the north of the island, which means we can guarantee 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. We 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 us and we can help you select your ideal base. If you prefer, the closest hotels are 20mins away which we can also arrange with transfers.

Arrieta may only be a 25 minute drive from the airport, but it feels like another world. The pace of life is relaxed. The sandy beach is a focal point, with stunning sea food restaurants running along the shore and a popular beach bar. Enjoy a sun downer here with your fellow divers before you head off to tuck into some of the best food on the island. There are 2 supermarkets so self catering is made simple. For those who want to explore more on land, you are close to the botanical gardens Jardin de Cactus, a cultural market at Haria and the famous Timanfaya National Park with volcanos. Car rental is easily arranged. No matter what you need, the team at North Diving are here to make your holiday just the way you like it!

Enjoyed a wonderful 7 days diving with Floh, Steffi and Arnaud. Great fun, a lot of laughs and wonderful food in Arrieta. Floh and the team are very professional and were very keen to accommodate our wishes. If you are looking for some fun, interesting diving in Europe with a safety conscious, professional and fun dive centre then look no further.
