I’m considering myself very fortunate at the moment. Whilst Los Gigantes sizzles in this heat wave I’m lucky enough to be able to cool off twice a day in a very pleasant 23° diving beneath the waves off the coast of Los Gigantes.

Temperatures in the shade are reaching a staggering 39° in Los Gigantes and we’re the lucky ones, residents of towns and villages higher up are baking in temperatures over 40°. A staggering 45° was recorded at Guia de Isora making it impossible for those without air conditioning to sleep at nights.

So when will it end? Well it depends which news source you listen to. One source says it will cool down as from today, another predicts record breaking high temperatures tomorrow (Sunday).

Well I’m now off for another dive too cool off again, this time with the amazing stingrays of Los Gigantes.

To dive with these amazing creatures you need to hold the minimum qualification of PADI Open Water (or similar).
