El Cabron Dive Site: A Marine Reserve and Diving Paradise in Gran Canaria


El Cabron Dive Site is one of the top diving destinations in Gran Canaria and is renowned for its diversity of sea life and breathtaking underwater scenery. As one of only three Marine Reserves in The Canary Islands, El Cabron has been classified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest by the European Union since December 28th, 2001.


This marine reserve boasts four different entry points, making it accessible to divers of all levels. Each dive site at El Cabron is unique, offering surprises around every corner. The volcanic bottom composition provides an ideal environment for an abundance of marine life, with caverns, swim-throughs, holes, caves, drop-offs, and arches waiting to be explored.


One of the reasons why El Cabron is so popular is the strict conservation measures in place. Boat traffic and commercial fishing are strictly prohibited in the area, allowing marine life to flourish undisturbed. However, it's important to note that diving at El Cabron is weather dependent, and not always possible.
