This is often used as a starter dive but it is a great dive that has a lot of marine life and some great scenery. This dive site is an islet that is named after the many sea lions that live in the area and so divers can expect to be joined by many sea lions on the dive.
The maximum depth of this dive is only 10 metres with divers starting at around 3 metres. Visibility ranges between 6 and 12 metres so divers should be able to see right down to the bottom of the ocean floor. The currents and surges found here are minimal and so it is good dive site for beginner divers and for divers wanting to do a refresher dive.
Divers will be able to see sea lions hunting for fish, swimming around, playing in the water, and sometimes they are curious about the actions of divers. There are also many different types of fish found here including burrfish, blennies, scorpionfish, cardinal fish, surgeonfish, and hawkfish. Divers can spot many different types of star fish and nudibranchs, and there are also many larger fish to be spotted. These include snappers and groupers. Divers can see turtles, stingrays, and octopus as well on this varied site. Sea birds living nearby also dive in, to feast on the marine life and they are joined by marine iguanas. Although there is a large variety of marine life, the main attractions are the many sea lions and this makes the dive site a unique dive.
