We spent 2 days diving here. The first day was a 45 mins dive with a maximum depth of 24mtrs and the second day 25mins/30mtrs.
Visibility was reasonably good and allthough variable the underwater landscape is sterile. We saw some small fish, a lobster and several murray eels,but apart from that marinelife is scarce.
Reading about diving these areas leeds to expectations that in our case was not fullfilled.
That`s probably a combination of wintertime when marinelife here is less abundant,and both me and Mercedes being spoiled from diving the South Pacific and the Red Sea.
The Mediterranean has crystal clear water from lack of planktons but that also means less nutrition and less marinelife. Moreover it`s not a sea with coralreefs like the tropics.
