Dive sites > East Gran Canaria > El cabrón
A road trip of approximately 50 minutes from Puerto de Mogán brings us to the underwater nature reserve “Marina Reserva Arinaga” or more often called “El Cabron”. The last part of the trip is off-road on a rough road and many dive centers don’t want to go there since their cars can get damaged. But we feel it’s worth it and we offer it to groups of divers to visit one of the best dive sites on Gran Canaria.
El Cabrón is one of only three marine reserves in the Canary Islands, classed as a site of special scientific interest by the European Union. In this area you can make eight totally different dives. There are four points of entry with two different dives. Each dive will surprise with the volcanic bottom composition, there are lots of caverns, swim troughs, holes, caves, drop-offs, arches… In the marine reserve boat traffic and commercial fishing is not allowed.
