Sites Barracuda Reef
On Barracuda Reef you'll descend to approximately 18 metres and encounter some medium sized grouper, fire worms, nudibranch and may be able to spot some barracuda above you out to sea if you take a look out that way during your dive.

Bream, morays, groupers, fireworms and peacock worms are all on display during the course of this dive where you may descend to a depth of about 21 metres or more.

Arc de Triomphe
This is a great dive! You'll start off by going through a small arc at about 8-12 metres, nicknamed the Arc de Triomphe because of its resemblance to the famous Arc in Paris. While going through the arc you'll be treated to a brilliant display of soft red corals on the underside of the arc. Continuing on, you'll spot grouper, morays, large bream and possibly some tuna may pop in if you look out to sea away from the coast. Following this, you'll pass through a sort of cavern where again you'll see nice soft red coral and sponge before making your return to your boat. The depths you will reach go to about 20 metres.

Octopus Reef
Octopus Reef, named so after the many octopi inhabiting the reef is a limestone reefs with plenty of hiding spots for crayfish, octopus, grouper and moray. You'll reach a depth of about 20 metres.

A 5mm wetsuit, dive knife, hood, gloves and booties are all recommended.

Visibility on the best days can reach up to 25 metres in the Mediterranean and as such is a treat for divers.

The water ranges from 14c in the spring to about 24c in the summer.
