WELCOME TO OPEN WATER LA HERRADURA DIVE CENTRE!

Located on the frontline seafront, with magnificent views of La Herradura Bay, our dive centre is the perfect base for you to adventure into the beautiful waters of the Mediterranean – in front.

We love the sea & we know a dive centre must provide all the necessary elements to gear up and conduct a quick and comfortable immersion into our goal – the aquatic world of the sea (transition to what we’re really interested in: the sea.)

(And the thing is, being strategically)Because Deepwater Dive Centre is located in the middle of the bay, we are logistically primed to access all local diving sites with dive centre vehicles – by land the local Marina del Este allows us to access Punta de la Mona’s spectacular dive sites; T by boat, we enjoy the wonderful waters of the Natural Reserve of the Maro-Cerro Gordo cliffs. Openwater Dive Centre boats pick-up & drop-off infront of the dive centre, how conveniant! But… What’s Openwater Dive Centre like?

SPACIOUS

Openwater Dive Centre is ´SPACIOUS´ - in capitals. We’re the largest dive centre in Andalusia, with 300 square metres dedicated to divers and their world. The large entrance with beach view windows is a contant connection to the Alboran Sea and the. The Openwater Dive Centre reception area is located here and it i where bookings reservations, insurance – all administrative necessities are completed. Here we can answer questions, assist or respond to matters of the day.

OUR CLASSROOM

Specialised knowledge is acquired and nobody is born a diver. It is a requirement that everyone begins by attending a Basic Diving Course - the Openwater Dive Centre classroom has a capacity of 15 people – where the initial teoretical elements of the course are taught in comfort. Practical elements of the course – required for certification - are undertaken in the sea, which is no distance from the classroom.

CHARGING STATION

This is where the adventure begins - a system which guarantees the safe bottling of clean air. We are surrounded by countryside, could you imagine a cleaner charge for your bottles?

SHOWERS AND DRESSING ROOM AREA

There’s nothing like a lovely warm shower after a good dive. We know it and that’s why we’ve created spacious and comfy showers rooms.

WET ROOM

After every dive it is obligatory to rins-off – to remove sea salt - and hang-up all used diving gear. To facilitate this, Openwater Dive Centre has a large ‘wet room’ area outside, where we can conveniently & easily complete the process.

TERRACE

Diving doesn’t end with the dive. We’re all friends and ´adventure buddies´ so there’s nothing better than to chat about how the dive went, on our terrace while we enjoy a cool drink. The terrace from where we can hear the sea and the birds that surround us, has a large barbeque where we cook up specialities on occasions.
