Scuba Diving in the Seychelles
Dive Site: The Canyon
Location: Desroches Island, Seychelles
Description: Reef dive from a boat
Depth: 35 metres (115 feet)
Visibility: 12 metres (40 feet)
We dived this site with the dive school on Desroches. We descended to some very large rocks at about 35m. It was possible to swim through and underneath several of them, making for an interesting dive. We saw large shoals of snappers, trevallies, sweetlips and a stingray swimming above us in the blue. This was in April and the water was incredibly warm over 30 degrees and we didn't need wetsuits. We did not have access to nitrox so the dive was quite short at 35 mins.
