If you are currently in the Canary Islands you might be wondering all you can see underwater, or maybe you’ve already gone for a dive and are trying to guess what is the name of what you just saw.
In this article, we’ve covered some of the marine species that can be seen in the Canary Islands while snorkeling. We also have linked articles created by the government of the Canary Islands with further information from every species listed. Just click the learn more button.
We’ve also ordered them by how common they are to see. The “commonness” rating measures the chances of seeing one of these species during a snorkeling session. If you think that they aren’t accurate it might be because it is hard to rate them for all islands, but it might also be that you aren’t snorkeling in the right areas. We are currently creating posts for the Best places to snorkel on all 7 islands. At the moment we have the article for Tenerife.
If you think we forgot to mention anything, don’t hesitate to write in the comment section!
Thank you for reading!
