Diving, both with snorkel and scuba gear, is the activity that draws more visitors to Mallorca because of the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean. It is home to many species of spectacular colours. You just have to put on a mask to discover dozens of seaweed, invertebrate and fish species that have nothing to envy to tropical coral reef species.

In the sea around Mallorca, you can see abundant marine wildlife thanks to the marine reserves, interesting caves and several wrecks. Our diving centres meet the requirements of the most demanding divers and offer a professional, comfortable and safe environment.
Most dive centres are affiliated to PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors), which means that PADI divers from around the world can dive in Mallorca. PADI certifies that the card holder is qualified to scuba dive. You can rent part or the entire equipment in the dive centres. The price includes the transport to and from the dive site.
The wrecks are covered by a large variety of invertebrates and are home to a large amount of fishes. Some wrecks can be dived through. As well as being a great scuba diving location, Mallorca also hosts National championships of apnea (breath-hold diving without bottles), fin swimming, underwater fishing and underwater photography. A license is essential to practise these activities. Otherwise, you must abide by the local legislation on underwater activities, especially in regards to fishing. In this respect, the license ensures the minimal environmental impact that underwater activities entail, because the license holder knows how to behave in order not to disturb the seabed.
Futhermore, as mandated by law, the hyperbaric chamber of the Instituto de Medicina Submarina (Underwater Medical Institute) is located less than an hour from all dive sites. The Institute has a portable hyperbaric chamber for use at underwater events. Fortunately, the chamber, which is used to treat underwater accidents, is seldom used.
