ENTRY TO THE SEA

After parking your vehicle you can choose to either carry your equipment to the left edge of the beach or set it up where you can and swim to the entry point located 450 (!) meters away. Get in the water and perform a good pre-dive check. If you have come prepared for a technical dive, check your scuba tanks. Start swimming with the rocks on your left shoulder. You need to reach the next tip where there is a reef. This is your entry point.

THE DIVE

By the time you get to that point you will probably be tired, so do not dive immediately. Take your time and dive only when you feel ready, following the tip as it enters the sea. The place deepens sharply and at 27 meters the first gorgonians make their appearance. After 38 meters, the red gorgonians appear, creating coral gardens of unique beauty. Mind your buoyancy as soft corals grow slowly and it is a pity to destroy one with one wrong leg stroke. The place is quite seductive and you will probably want to go a little deeper. Follow your plan, avoiding excesses.

If you need to make more decompression stops other than the safety stop, be sure to get out of the deep in time. Even the shallows of the area are quite interesting so you will not get bored. With good air consumption, you can reach the beach of Agia Vaso diving, keeping in mind to make all the necessary stops.

Happy ascent.
