  • First dive and absolute perfection! Calm, serenity, immensity... We sail in the schools of fish all around the rather massive wreck, all e' imagining the life on board until the sinking. It is a magical place! If you're lucky you'll probably see manta rays! And especially any kind of fish, big groupers not frightened at all, Napoleons, clown fish, trumpets and so much more! If you can, take a camera underwater you will not be disappointed. It's really an intense and awesome experience.
