El Condesito was a 30-meter (98-foot) long cargo ship that sank off the southernmost tip of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. Now split into several parts, the shipwreck is one of the most popular dive sites in Tenerife. It rests at the bottom of a canyon at a maximum depth of about 21 meters (69 feet), but several parts are found at shallower depths of even 6 meters (20 feet).
The visibility at El Condesito dive spot is great, often exceeding 35 meters (115 feet). However, the site is exposed to currents which raised its difficulty level to medium. Nonetheless, since some parts lie in shallow water, diving is suitable for novices as well. The shipwreck, although still penetrable, is unstable.
El Condesito is now inhabited by marine animals such as octopus, lobsters, scorpionfish, huge trumpetfish, barracudas, stingrays, eels, sea urchins, and sardines.
There are also a few rock formations near the wreck that are also worth exploring. A drop-off of 36 meters (118 feet) where black coral can be seen is also located nearby. It is often dived by experienced divers.
Diving is possible year-round, but for the best diving conditions at El Condesito, come between April and October.
