DESCRIPTION OF THE DIVE
On Mulo dive current is usually there. If diving guide knows the dive he can start it in relatively calm sea. There are two dives you can do without changing boat location. Both dives start from few meters depth between big rocks which form small channels. As you go on you will pass over few steps, each few meters height, until around 20 m when you come on the top of the 20 m cliff full of life. Cliff is entirely covered with different organisms in beautiful colours, like great undersea garden. There are lots of holes and cracks where you can see moray eels, congers and lots of octopuses. Advanced divers can go down to 40 m here and see biggest forest of gorgonia fans in Adriatic. First dive goes down to 30 meters on the cliff and back toward the boat. Second dive is shallower and goes all around the island Mulo.
TIPS & TRICKS
Current on this dive is always there and it can be real strong. Do not go wondering away from the dive guide, for if you miss the turn back, current can take you and than it will be a problem swimming back. On this small island there is Austro-Hungarian lighthouse built in 1873, go check it out between the dives. Today this lighthouse is fully automatic, but in the old times there was a family living on it all year long. Watch out for fishing nets.
