Dedicated to the teaching and training of water safety and rescue
Lanzarote Lifeguard was established in 2011 with a view to educating local people in the skills needed to save a life.
Our team is made up of watermen and women who share in the same passion, the water.
Lanzarote is a paradise island of sea, sand and surf but with this beauty there is also an underlying danger for people who simply have lack of understanding about open water. This includes swimming pools, lakes, rivers and quarries.
Over the past few years we have been able to educate not just the local population but also reaching many people all over the planet.

Paul has an unquenchable thirst for lifeguarding and lifesaving and with a goal of becoming a beach lifeguard from a very early age realised his dream and became the coordinator for the red cross run beaches in Puerto Del Carmen.
