We like to treat our customers with care and personalized attention.In the waters if this Natural Reserve we can find the "Las Palomas" island, our main dive area with around 8 different dive sites. We are lucky to have a great visibility almost all year round and, due to the strict protection of the area, we can enjoy a great diversity of marine life in every single dive. We can destacar the occasional Sun fish as well as the avistamiento of whales and dolphins and, if you are lucky enough, in summer time you might be able to enjoy the company of a nice sea turtle.We offer daily trips to the "San Andres" and "Las Calderas" wrecks, being the first one a famous old 150 year old vapor boat at around 27 meters deep and the second one an open water level wreck at a depth of 15 meters.We are located in the town of Tarifa, right inside the harbor. Less than an hour drive from Cadiz. We offer you everything a dive club and school can offer.

The crew at Yellow Sub dive shop provided the training I needed to be safely qualified as an open water diver. Yellow Sub also provides bilingual training. As a USA citizen I will always proudly display my diver certificate earned in Tarifa Spain.
