Scuba diving in Veril de Fariones
The area features an underwater cliff off Playa Grande which is distinguished from the rest by its depth and the height of its walls, and is an ideal place for snorkeling and underwater safety stops. The entire Puerto del Carmen cliff is a perfect place to observe the passing of migrating species that live in the deep blue waters, such as tuna, amberjack and wahoo. Coming here divers can spot devil rays, dolphins, angel sharks, turtles and even whales swimming along the cliff walls. There are many dives that can be done along this stretch of the coast, especially deep dives. This place has the steepest slope in the Canaries and is conveniently located near the coast with a comfortable access from the shore. Black coral forests can be seen here at about 60m/197ft depth. The average depth of the site is 25m/82ft. Big dusky groupers, anemones and giant anemones that grow along the cliff can also be found here.
