Dive Information Detail

Deepest Experience 15 m.
General Remarks Site Situated deep in Sogod Bay. The flat in the shallow is small: just below the beach a few meters of huge rocks, then sloping fast to deep water.
Facilities for Divers None.
Type of Bottom After the huge stones near the shore, a mud bottom mixed with heavy black sand. Lots of rocks and coral formations mounting up from this bottom. Steep slope.
Marine Life Rich in fishes and in the shallows rich in crustacea and mollusca. Very good in general.
Visibility 8-15 m.
Currents None.
Level Recreational when accompanied. Advanced for nightdives. Slopes tricky.
