Description: Reef dive

Depth: 13 - 24 metres (43 - 79 feet)

Rating: ***

A fault in the ocean some 2.5 miles out - in front of ArmaÁ„o de PÍra - spectacular overhangs and caves usually good viz with a profusion of life including crayfish.

There are many different dive locations along this reef, with many different styles of walls to follow with large rocks and overhangs to look under and around. The Wall has areas as shallow as 12 or 13 metres. Good for beginners - following down to 18+ metres
