About The Caves Dive

The dive begins with a gradual descent to around 2-3 metres and as you make your way round to the caves, it reaches a maximum depth of 12 metres. The dive actually starts in fairly shallow waters and to reach the actual caves, takes around 10 minutes of gentle finning.

On your decent and on making your way to the caves, you will see the many different types of marine life that inhabit the many rock formations.

On reaching the caves, you have several choices. Each of the many caves are different in size and each one has its own character and charm.

Descending down through one of the caves in a freefall motion, provides you with the feeling of being in Space and is a great sensation.
