Dive Site Description
Located about 20-25 minutes away from Underwater Vision, a couple of miles away from the Island, Black Hills is a mound in the middle of the sea.
The top of the Sea Mound is in between 30-40ft (9-12m) and along the sides it slops down to 100-130ft (30-40m). On the far eastern side it drops down beyond 130ft (40m). Covered with a great variety of corals, a dive on the sea mound is a very colourful experience.
Black Hills is probably the dive site with the greatest diversity of fish life. You are guaranteed to experience schooling Horse-eyed Jacks, Atlantic Spade fish and Creole wrasses by the hundreds!
Black Hills is also a great site for watching free-swimming Moray Eels, Lionfish and resting Nurse Sharks.
In the shallows, try your luck and search for different types of crustaceans. Because of the lack of sandy areas Black Hills is well suited for more experienced divers. For any Advanced Open Water Course dive without the need for sand Black Hills will make a great dive site.
