1. Tripiti reef

 

 
One of our favorite dive sites since you can enjoy any type of diving in this reef. Relaxing shallow dives for the less experienced and exhilarating deeper dives for the more experienced divers.



2. Apollonia VI wreck


The cargo vessel Apollonia VI built in 1955 hit the reef the 10th of June 1980. Today it offers a very nice dive to both novice and advanced scuba divers. Two of the biggest parts of the ship (the bow and the stern) are lying in relatively shallow water (18-24 m). Combined with the excellent visibility this site offers it’s definitely a site worth revisiting.

Depth: 18-24 m
Visibility: 20m

3.  Portugal wreck

 


The M/V Portugal hit the southwest side of the reef.As a result of this collision the ship broke in to two pieces. The biggest of them sunk on the reef. Today one of those pieces of Portugal is lying in a depth of 26 to 40 meters offering another exciting diving spot in the reef.
