Tunnels & Caves
Situated by Cape Greko, 5 minutes from our dive centre. This is truly a fantastic dive passing through underwater caverns and caves. All caves have entry and exit points along with plenty of light, (No extra training or torches are necessary). Witness the rocks “breathing” as the air from inside the caves escapes on its way to the surface.
Just follow the instructions of our dive guide and you will have an awesome experience. The maximum depth is 12m and the exit through the hidden cave to the “Blow Hole” which cannot be seen unless your guide takes you through.
The Canyon is named because of the shape of the entry area within the cliff formations of Cape Greko. Once out of the canyon, you can either turn left and carry out a wall dive along the cliff face, or turn right and head towards the reef located at around a depth of 15m. Two separate dives can be carried out at this site.
