Jump out of the boat and you are literally standing on top of the Canyon del Diablo. This dive site focuses on a large, open-fronted overhang or canyon under the reef table right off the shore. The entry is most often from a boat and into the deep blue. The canyon can only be dived in calm conditions. Once in the water, you can find the canyon directly below you and on both the left and right side you will find a shallow reef. The reef that circles the canyon is just as attractive as the canyon itself with both sides abundant soft and hard corals. Here you will often spot large groupers, scorpionfish, moray eels and big octopuses. Enter the cave and swim to the back; then turn and watch the light shine through the swarms of anthias and colorful encrusted sponge on both sides of the walls, swimming upside down on the ceiling of the cave, a perfect spot for your safety stop!
