A dive for experienced divers in the south of Tenerife
In the south of Tenerife, the more experienced divers have a demanding dive at a maximum of 45 metres, one which has wonderful seascapes of underwater ravines, arches, caves and sand banks and fascinating marine life. San Miguel begins with a crossing from Los Cristianos or Las Galletas to La Punta de Rasca. After a descent of 28 metres along a cable, the diver begins a route dominated by strong currents and memorable sights.
An arch with black coral at a depth of 40 metres
One of the most spectacular places in San Miguel is a narrow arch cut out in the volcanic rock at a depth of 40 metres which leads to a dome covered in black coral and an area of pale sand. The excellent visibility at 45 metres allows diver to see spiny butterfly rays and angelfish lying on the sand. Another of the highlights is the chance to see enormous groupers and shoals of European barracudas as well as some deep sea species roaming around.
