Huraa Etere

An easy dive site which is ideal for open water dives 3 and 4 OWD, but also offers nice macro stuff. You can find them at the mini wreck or the cargo that lies around the hull on the ground (16-19m). A little further out west (20m) we find a small thila.

Sea needles, gobies, butterflyfish, young fusiliers, huge very shy turtles, warty snails, and, with a little luck, nudibranchs or huge stingrays!
