With the Atlantic to the north and the Mediterranean to the south, Spain boasts a broad array of dive options. From big blue sharks prowling the Bay of Biscay off the rugged northern coast to colorful gorgonians waving gently in the warm clear waters of the much milder Mediterranean, there is something here to tempt divers of all persuasions.

Spain Sea Life
There is an incredible variety of marine life in Spain’s waters, from huge sea bass to tiny nudibranchs. Shimmering mackerel come in massive schools, bringing macro predators of all types. You can see whales, dolphins, and sometimes even sharks on your dives. Huge barracuda are common, especially around the many wrecks in these waters. Farther out, you can see tremendous grouper and tuna, a spellbinding sight.
How to Get There
Flying in to Spain is easiest, if you are venturing in from afar, but you can also arrive by train or by sea. The metro systems in major cities are extensive and easy to follow, and you can take a taxi or rent a car to get out to more far flung locales.
