 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): Max depth is 7m so a two hour dive on a single tank is likely if you take it easy.

The dive site is very shallow and a long dive is possible, so a wetsuit is a must or cold may set in. You should find plenty of fish on this dive. Check out my video in the link above; Sharks, rays, yellowtail, bonito, rays, eels, rays, cuttle fish, cleaner wrasse, rays, and numerous others. Did I mentions rays? There are lots of rays...often swimming in schools
