Scuba Diving in Tenerife
Dive Site: Amarilla Montagne (Yellow Mountain)
Description: Basaltic wall with sand base
Depth: 17 - 22 metres (56 - 72 feet)
Visibility: 30 - 40 metres (100 - 130 feet)
A great dive, best accessible by boat from Las Galletas. Drop down the anchor line to 5m shelf then go over the edge descending to a sandy bottom. There is one arch to go through. Last time I was down there spotted a fire worm and a spider shrimp along with the regular assorted sea life.

I dived Yellow Mountain as dive 2 & 3 on my open water course and loved it. Saw octopus, cuttlefish, garden eels etc and ended the dive with a lovely swim through archway. A long swim on the surface back to shore though, but the whole dive reinforced my love of diving!!!!
