Amadores Bay Snorkeling

The 4th most popular snorkel dive spot in Canary Islands.

On Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands, the snorkeling off Amadores is known to be excellent, especially first thing in the morning when the visibility is good. When snorkling at Amadores, you can expect to see parrotfish, wrasses, pufferfish and damselfish. Experienced snorkelers tend to prefer the snorkeling on the righthand side of the bay leading out to the breakwater. TIP: For your safety, most of the Canary Island snorkeling dive sites require snorkelers to have a diver-down flag marker. The waters around the islands are very popular with windsurfers and boaters, which has resulted in some snorkeler deaths over the past few years.

Overall, Amadores Bay is the 4th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 12 snorkeling dives in Canary Islands.
