Underwater World of Mallorca

Diving in Mallorca is an unforgettable experience with a rich diversity of the underwater world. The crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea, caves and numerous marine species make it a perfect place for diving enthusiasts. Here you will encounter colorful fish, octopuses, moray eels and impressive rock formations.

Underwater Adventures on the Pearl of the Mediterranean

Mallorca, known as the pearl of the Mediterranean Sea, not only delights with its picturesque beaches and charming monuments, but also hides extraordinary secrets under the water surface for diving enthusiasts. This Spanish island attracts enthusiasts of underwater exploration with its crystal clear and warm water, rich underwater life and unique rock formations, as well as numerous grottoes and caves.

Diversity of the Underwater World

Diving in Mallorca is a journey through diverse marine ecosystems. The waters around the island are home to many colorful fish such as sea bream, salema, tuna, stonefish, barracuda and grouper. We can often meet octopuses, moray eels, cuttlefish, shrimps, rays and many other fascinating species. The seabed, although perhaps not as dazzling as in tropical regions, is full of life and is a perfect place to observe underwater flora and fauna.

Caves and Rock Formations

One of the most exciting aspects of diving in Mallorca is its impressive rock formations and caves. Water tunnels, hidden caves and mysterious passages offer unforgettable experiences for experienced divers. Exploring underwater caves and following rock nooks is a unique way to discover the hidden corners of the island. One such place is diving in a tunnel called Calo de’n Monjio. It is located only 5 minutes by car from our center. All daredevils who have a minimum AOWD certificate and are in good physical condition can dive there. In Majorca, we can find many more flooded caves, e.g. Cova des Pirata or Cova Genovesa, but only people with Full Cave certificates and the appropriate permit can dive there.

Perfect Visibility

The crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea provide excellent visibility during underwater exploration. Divers in Mallorca have the opportunity to admire the undersea landscape in all its splendor: sun and water. Such conditions are conducive to expanding divers’ skills in underwater photography, enabling them to capture extraordinary moments in this picturesque environment.

Mallorca wrecks

Mallorca offers fascinating wreck diving opportunities. One popular wreck is the “MV Playa Dorada,” a 1959 Spanish cargo ship sunk off the port of Palma de Mallorca in 1991. However, to visit this wreck, it is best to use the DPV scooters that we have at our diving center. Below you will find a short video of diving on the wreck. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnxuXYRqqWw

But this is not the only wreck that Mallorca can offer us. In the north of the island, in the bay of Bahia de Pollenca, at a depth of 39 meters lies the wreck of Andrea Ferrara – a “ghost ship” that mysteriously found itself at the bottom of the bay. It was discovered by fishermen 10 years ago and since then it has been a refuge for many species of fish. Due to the great depth, to see it, we must have a minimum AOWD qualification with the “deep diver” specialization.

For those interested, here is a video from diving on the wreck:

For wreck diving enthusiasts, Mallorca is an interesting place with a variety of locations to explore underwater.
