Fiesta del Carmen in Gran Canary!
No diving possible on Sunday afternoon, 19.07.2015. A nice wreck dive in the morning but then back to the peer: at 13:00h around 300 ships and boats entered the harbor of Mogan Playa! The party-Armada came to visit the holy virgin “Santa Carmen”, the patroness of seamen, fishermen and divers! Giant loudspeakers gave the rhythm for the colorful boat people! What a chaos! So many ships, yachts and jet ski wanted to see the statue of Carmen, not sure if all boats saw her…
Next week it will go the other way: the fisher boats from Mogan will visit the virgin in Arguineguin, but the more traditional way, with decorated ships and sacred music in honour of the holy virgin.
And our dive boat “Marea Canaria” was close to the holy statue, so we can hope for another great season! The outstanding visibility and the mass of fish make us confident! Come and join us, the conditions are excellent!
