Dive Site Description
Located about 50-60 minutes from Underwater Vision, Don Qiuckset is on the north-western side of the Island.
The buoy is strategically placed right on the drop off at 10ft(3m). The top of the reef is at about 10ft (3m) of water and hosts a large variety of juvenile fish of many different species, like yellowtail damselfish, Parrotfish and Blue Tangs. Look also for the beautiful, but shy Red cheek Blenny.
A steep wall drops down to between 40-50ft (12-15m) and from there canyon-like channels carve their way into the volcanic rocks. From the top the site it may appear a bit untidy, but you can have great fun crisscrossing around in the channels. Continuing out from the channels there is a sandy area which opens up scattered with rocky coral formations. This is a terrific place for seeing huge Southern Stingrays and Hawk fish.
Cruising the channels you may possibly find a Nurse Shark under the rocks and various types of Groupers.
The maximum depth of the site is 90ft (27m), however, the best parts of the dive remain at about 50-60ft (15-18m) where most of the interesting topographical features and marine life appear.
