"One of Nature's Hidden Treasures"

 
Reef Sharks
 

Colombia

Depth 50'-90'

Experience level. Intermediate. You can go as deep as you want and make this an advanced dive. The currents are usually moderate.

 

Sometimes called Colombia Regular, this site lies between Colombia Deep and Colombia Shallows. Divers can go through multiple swim throughs or swim next to high walls. The current is not too bad in between the formations. This is a nice dive for coral formations and for seeing big animals and colorful little creatures.

You get a little of everything on this dive. You can choose nice deep swim throughs, wall diving, and at the top of the reef, you see healthy coral and sponges and plenty of fish.

You can hardly miss seeing a few turtles here. They are very tolerant of divers.

You might spot an Spotted Eagle Ray cruising by in the sandy areas or off the wall.

Look for an octopus in the cracks of the wall.

In 2012 two small reef sharks have been spotted.
