How Hot is this Dive Site? click a star to rate it
Very easy dive site used for introductory and training dives. Max Depth around 10m. Entry very easy. Wade in to waist height, add fins etc then wade further until deep enough to defend. Slow gradual slope out . Marine life includes families of squid, and shoals of trumpet fish, octopus, moray eels, lots of sea grass and in all the years I've dived there only recently spotted a Seagrass Pipefish. Wrasse and bream usually plentiful but are often fed by diving instructors for entertainment of novice divers. Some statues have been placed there to make the site a bit more interesting- divers often comment that it's a boring site but I've always found it interesting and great for photography.

"Can You See Me Now?" Seagrass Pipefish - found hiding in sea grass in Green Bay, Protaras, Cyprus this little guy got brave and decided to poke it's head out. When it is amongst the grass it is very difficult to see.
