Diving in Cabrera

South of Mallorca, right in front of Colonia de Sant Jordi, Archipelago de Cabrera is located. This archipelago is the best possible example of an untouched island ecosystem within the Spanish Mediterranean. Since 1991, the National Marine-Land Park hosts important native species diversity, including colonies of seabirds, endemic species and one of the best preserved sea bottoms of our coastal zone.

DIVING GUIDE ONBOARD

A professional diver (divemaster) is provided to guide the groups everyday (maximum 5 pairs of divers, usually less) with no additional cost. Individual guides are also available upon request due to the lack of expertise of some divers (see next paragraph).

 

REQUIRED EXPERTISE

An Open Water Diver certification is enough to conduct all dives in Cabrera, although it is highly recommended that all boat divers in open waters are up-to-date with their skills and knowledge. As a certified diver you are responsible for keeping yourself updated. In case you do not believe you are ready for a boat dive in open waters, please check the options at your disposal:

  • Request an individual divemaster for yourself or your whole group: (+45€ half-day boat trip / +65€ whole-day boat trip).
  • Take a refreshment course, three different levels available: See refreshment courses.
