Canyons

Canyons is an advanced dive site with a maximum depth reaching 34m and average depth around 27m. One of the main and most spectacular features of Canyons is a large mushroom rock with a big green coral tree that seems like it was delicately placed there decorated with sea goldies.

There is a surprising amount of reef fish and nudibranchs to be found at Canyons with many gullies, overhangs, and crevices to explore. Large schools of pelagic game fish are found also.
