Los Chuchos is the Canarian name for “the stingrays” . It is our most popular dive site. After all these years the site is now so well established that several species of stingrays are seen regularly. Also permanently residing here is a large Barracuda and a massive shoal of banded bream.
Sometimes there can be as many as six different species of Ray at this site, and on occasions, when we are very lucky, we get a visit from a rare and elusive Bull Ray. The nature of the site means that large pelagics such as jacks and tuna are also regularly seen. Who knows what may make an appearance!!!
The stingrays of Los Gigantes have been filmed for TV programmes as well as featured in many magazine articles, both Internationally and in the UK. Some of our customers have named this site “Stingray Village”, as they put it, “why go all the way to Cayman Brac when you can have the same thrill on Europe’s doorstep”.
