La Palma plans new diving guide
La Palma is planning a major campaign to put itself on the international diving map.
The island’s Cabildo is promoting diving tourism and has contracted the company Oceanographic to compile a diving guide. This will spotlight on clubs and businesses involved in the sport.
“It will also take in the general tourism of the island, paying special attention to sustainability and awareness of the protection of our sea and sustainable diving,” said tourism councillor, Alicia Vanoostende.
The guide will be free in digital format for anyone interested.
“This diving guide of La Palma is one of the requests of the tourism sector of the island, with which we work hand in hand at specific meetings to solve difficulties and favour the development of this tourist product of diving,” the coun-cillor added.
Those taking part in the creation of the dive are La Palma Diving, Blue Magma La Palma, Casa de buceo, Naosub, Uchpartner and Sub Buceo, as well as associations such as La Palma Isla Azul and representatives of the Puerto Marinas of Tazacorte, Santa Cruz de La Palma and La Marina Marine Reserve.
“The development of the work of the guide along with the sector can serve as a boost for the creation of a network of collaboration between companies and clubs. On the other hand, it will be a fundamental tool for the foreign promotion of the dive tourism on the island,” said Alicia Vanoostende.
