The Steps or Los Escolones is a nice dive site in Tenerife. From the anchor line in 13m we drop off a wall passing a large shoal of silver and yellow 'Silema' to a sandy bottom at 18m. Onward through a good sized swim through, full of Trumpet Fish that seem to hover motionless in the water, before swimming gently down the ledges to 30m. The volcanic rock formations here resemble huge steps, on a ledge at 30 meters looking out into the blue if we are lucky we can encounter tuna and dolphin passing by in the currents that pass this place and can be strong at times.
Sometimes we can venture over the drop off to view a large undercut in the rock that adorns with Black coral and soft coral's. Turning shoreward, we ascend slowly with the seabed often seeing Rays and Angel Shark on our swim back towards the coast. On reaching the base of the wall, we turn to the right where usually a large shoal of Barracuda can be seen. Climbing the basalt rock formation we swim up to approx 6m. A great place for photography and video.

One of the best dives here in Tenerife. After extensive clearing of the Lime Urchins, it has developed into an amazing site. The regroweth of marine plants has brought in a diversity of sea life. The lave rock formations are stunning, likened to the Giants Causeway in Ireland. A dive we do regularly and one not to be missed.
