Scuba Diving Grades

If you are suitably qualified and are not Diving alone, the cover is provided within the guidelines of the relevant diving or training agency or organisation as confirmed below:

  • PADI Open Water - 18 metres
  • PADI Advanced Open Water - 30 metres
  • BSAC Ocean Diver - 20 metres
  • BSAC Sports Diver - 35 metres
  • BSAC Dive Leader - 50 metres 

Common Injuries whilst Scuba Diving (up to 30 metres)

Most importantly for divers going to this depth of water, 30 metres is the depth at which symptoms of nitrogen narcosis can occur.

This is a condition that temporarily alters the consciousness, affecting the senses and movements of a Diver and causing them to experience numbness. It can also lead to hallucinations.

  • Damaged sinuses and ruptured ear drums can be caused by the change in air pressure
  • Disability or even death, in extreme cases, can be the result of decompression sickness
  • Oxygen toxicity can cause the diver to have a seizure and drown
  • Hypothermia, necessitating the use of a wet suit even in mild waters

Scuba Diving Activities

Leagues Ahead Diving in Gran Canaria offers a Range of Scuba Activities. The water averages from 19 - 22 degrees year-round, meaning you'll never be too cold!

Leagues Ahead also offer a full Scuba Diving Kit including a thermal wetsuit for the colder months. If you visit in January, you'll be there at the height of Angel Shark season, be sure to try and spot one of these on your trips!
