Onderwaterfauna Tenerife 2016 Versie-3
Dive site: Palm Mar Cave
Onderwaterfauna / Underwater fauna
Depth: 18-40 metres
From an anchorage in 16m we first make our way down a wall where
we find many varieties of Morays hiding in the cracks. At the end of
the wall we cross over the sand to some magnificent pinnacles that
you can weave your way around, paying your respect to the Virgin
del Carmen statue that was laid in 32m for the protection of both
divers and fishermen of the island. Looking across from here you will
see a carpet of garden eels.
As you make your way into 28 meters you will be at the cave
entrance. However this is not to be fully penetrated due to it leading
into a maze of lava tunnels.  A small cross at the entrance is a grim
reminder of those who went in and never came back out.  The mouth
of the cave has enough to keep you occupied however as it is teeming
with shrimp and it is not unusual to see rays or angel sharks asleep in
the sand.  A favourite among those qualified for deep diving.
