Coral Reef, Anacapa Island, Southern California

   United States  Pacific
There are locations in the world that are uniquely suited to one species above all others. Coral Reef has perfect conditions for the brittlestar, Ophiothrix spiculata. The foot of this rocky wall is completely covered by them. In contrast to smaller populations elsewhere in Southern California, the individuals here exhibit a variety of color schemes. Perhaps they lack a visual predator that is present at other sites. Whatever the case; this is one dive that should be at the top of every world traveler's to do list.

Puerto del Carmen, harbour wall, Lanzarote

   Spain  Atlantic (African coastal)
Harbour Wall Night diving

This site is ideal for night diving no matter what pour experience is. There ia always an abundance of marine life to see and depths range from 8-22 meters. The dive starts with the harbour wall on your right side and on the return it is always on your left so this makes it easy to navigate for the inexperienced and always gives them a point of reference if they get dissorientated. For the more experienced night diver, at the base of the harbour wall are large sand beds where rays and angel sharks can be found sleeping.

There is also the "Blue Hole", a nice swim through where lots of night time marine life is to be found, such as shrimp, slipper lobster and large hermit crabs. The back of the blue hole opens up at a depth of around 25-30 meters depending on tides.

The currents are usually very mild so it gives you ample time to concentrate on your photographs without fighting for bouyancy or pisitioning. In general a great site for night diving at any level. There are lots of parking areas and dive centers like Manta diving that are located at the site.
