 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): Turtle Tomb is a small cave system behind turtle cavern.

If you follow the left hand wall of the cavern to the end and swim arount the big rock in your way you will end up in front of a small tunnel big enough for one diver to swim through. Behind that tunnel a cave opens with several side tunnels. There's a tiny window which opens at the wall close to barracuda point. if you take off your gear you might be able to exit there if you're really thin. Whatch out - there's usually a scorpion fish at that exit!

The cave floor of turtle tomb is covered with a thick layer of white dust which contains countless skelettons of green sea turtles. The turtles have died in there of asphyxia since they couldn't find their way out.

If you stir up the dust the same might happen to you. Only enter with a local guide who knows the cave!

Turtle Tomb is a VERY special dive site which every cave diver should have seen once in his life!
