DESCRIPTION OF THE DIVE
In the middle of the sea there is a big underwater reef which comes up to 5 m. depth. On the southwest side, where you start the dive, is a vertical cliff. As you descend down you will come on to a cave on around 32 m. depth. The cave is big enough for one diver to enter but diving guides do not allow it because of big risk that you will damage the walls covered in different colourful corals. Usually inside of the cave there is few spiny lobster whose red white moustache you can see on the ceiling of the cave. As you continue the dive you will come on the biggest part of the cliff with orange gorgonia fans and lots of life on and around it. Than suddenly cliff breaks right and you come on a deep crack in the stone almost wide enough for a diver to enter. This crack is usually a hide out for bigger fish. As you come on the top of the cliff on 19 m. depth, bottom gradually goes toward the top of entire reef up to 5 m. On the top of the reef there are interesting stones and lots of life surrounding them, especially octopuses, nudibranchs and golden zoanthids.
TIPS & TRICKS
Watch out for the current as you swim on your way back toward the top of the reef . If you peek in to cracks be sure there is no moray eels or congers inside. Next to the cliff on around 45 m. depth there is a wreckage of a working platform looking like an arrow. Platform is around 40 m length, 17 m. width and 5 m. Height – only for advanced divers.
