Once again Kev leaves it late and Flippas-n-Fins already has stuff booked for 2018, however we are sadly lacking on the Mature Tour front.
So consensus is everyone who has been with us to Lanzarote has enjoyed the week. Kev just loves the place, so is going back with Carol in May 2018.
Want to come to?
He has reserved 8 rooms in Puerto Del Carmen at El Dorada, up by the Biosphere. This is a very different end of the strip from our normal location, but gives us a whole new area to explore.
Flights are for Gatwick Depart 21st May 2018 14:00, (LGW ACE) arriving at 18:10 transfers are included. Luggage of 15kg hold and 5kg carry on is included. Divers producing a PADI card get and extra 5kg FOC hold, then we can book sports bags extra if we want.
Return 28th May 2018 19:10, (ACE LGW) arriving 23:00, (Ouch).
As normal this is a trip for Divers and non-divers alike.
Kev goes to Lanza at least once a year and often twice, (Although Ian is off there in Jan/Feb for 2 ½ weeks Staffing and Instructor Course so it may only be once in 2018!). We aim for it to be a relaxed leisurely week with some great diving. We are looking at a format that has worked several times for us.
The divers surface in the morning and will be collected and taken to Kev Turner's place, Canary Island Divers to grab the Dive Van to a local area for our dives. We dive in the morning, usually twice, to return to the dive centre during or shortly after lunch so we have time in the afternoon and evenings to relax, join non-diving partners or friends, or sometimes indulge in an afternoon snooze round the pool with a coffee or a Beer!
We are quite close to Playa Chica one on the main dive sites so non divers can easily stroll down and meet us between dives for coffee or a glass, (Bottle) of Vino.
Then we either wonder as a group for evening scoff, (Or Cocktails for some), or out on your own as you want. We always try to have a date night so those as couples choose their restaurant and rest of us leave them alone, (so romantic!!), but guess what, if you want to play after Kev and Carol will be found afterwards having a cocktail, (Not so Romantic). For those brave enough Kev may take you to Kiko’s Bar. We would be the only non-locals and believe us it is not for the feint hearted.
In respect of diving you can have none or six days or anything in between, so take your pick and spend as much time as you need,(or Not), with the non-diver/s.
If you are interested please let us know ASAP and we will call and see if more places are avaliable. We have booked self-catering apartments for two people as it’s great to eat out as there are hundreds of reasonable restaurants in walking distance.
Diving is not included in the costs, give us a clue as to how many days you will want and we will let KevT know and you will pay him direct out there.
Anyone wanting the statue dive this dive will have to be pre-booked before we go. Kev has done it 4 times now watching it develop and thinks he will go back for it again. If you have not done it before it really is a not to be missed dive.
Please let us know if you want to come to Lanzarote with us
