Certified divers will love the mix of boat and shore diving, with a regular schedule of dives throughout the day. It's an ideal choice for anyone looking for a family holiday with some diving as well as those wanting to do up to 4 dives a day! Dive groups are small. From your first breaths as a bubblemaker and open water courses to the first professional steps of divemaster or specialties, enjoy the professional approach of this multi lingual, experienced team. There are a huge range of boat or shore dives, accessible for all experience levels. The dive sites vary completely, some are famous for the aquatic life - barracuda, grunts, salemas, ornate wrasse, glass eyes, almaco jacks, sea bream, parrot fish, grouper, lizard fish, mullet, flounder, sea horses, sting rays, butterfly rays, the occasional turtle and angel sharks to name a few. The THB Tropical Island resort is a large hotel in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote. Here you have all you need on site as well as stunning scenery and picturesque beaches. Enjoy lazy days in the warm Canaries sunshine or create your own action packed break at a price you can afford with self catering through to all inclusive options.

The most popular option is the standard apartment, with it's bright, airy decor, full kitchen, living room and separate bedroom. You can sleep up to 4 people in one apartment. If you are travelling as part of a group, why not book one of the connecting apartments. These sleep up to 8 people with separate bedrooms, living room and kitchen. The premium apartments are in the premium area, which is adults only, with it's own swimming pool, chill out space and snack bar. All of the apartments have a terrace or balcony, safe, air con, wifi (paid locally) and flat screen TV. The kitchen comes with a kettle, coffee machine, fridge and microwave.

This is a flexible resort with something for everyone. The animation team have an action packed schedule for the younger guests so you can sneak off to the thermal spa or go diving. They can while away the hours at the mini club or head to the splash park to cool off. If you don't fancy lazing by the pool, head to the sports courts for some football, tennis or volleyball. There is a gym, table tennis, darts and billiards as well as bike rental service. As well as the pools shared by each apartment block, there is a large pool with bar area for snack and refreshments during the day.

Fantastic, great diving. The dive centre made sure everything was taken care of and our guide Rinus made sure we had a fantastic experience. We saw some the best diving Lanzarote has to offer. Fantastic. So much more to see and do. Can't wait to go back. Thank you.

Came here with my best friend for a relaxing get away and that's exactly what we had. Decided to upgrade on arrival and this was done with ease giving us extra facilities and access to the adult only pool area which is stunning. The bar waitress in this area, Fini, is a star. So happy and polite. The rooms are nice with a balcony view over a small pool area. We chose to come self-catering as we like to eat out so can't really comment on the food. All the staff here were lovely. We hired a car for the week so had no issues getting to the sea front and marina which is definitely worth a visit. I'd definitely recommend here and we will be back later this year.

When our kids asked to go diving while on vacation, my wife and I were a bit apprehensive since we have next to no experience. I must say our experience with Dawn Dives from the very beginning alleviated all of our concerns. Every dealing with the company was positive and professional. Our children took part in the Discover SCUBA Diving course and had so much fun we decided to have the take the Jr SCUBA Diver course two days later. Can't say enough positive things about the experience. Staff was very knowledgeable, kid friendly, safety minded. and FUN! We made some great friends at Dawn Dives.
