Overview
More
Son Bou Scuba - Menorca is an expanding Dutch run dive centre (PADI 5 Star Dive Resort, BSAC Resort Centre) and dive shop, ideally situated on the South coast. Menorca offers excellent diving, with 30 mtr. visibility in warm water, stunning caves (such as Pont D'en Gil cavern, Swiss Cheese, La Catedral, Moon Pool, the Belltower) as well as wrecks. We organize daily boat and shore dives to the best sites around Menorca; not just the ones that are in the vicinity of the dive centre. Every day we have half-day Discover Scuba excursions for beginners from the shore - from 10 years onwards.
