The Oasis

Here's a beautiful dive! The Oasis is a reef lying around 24 meters depth, with ledges, overhangs and little caves, covered in hard and soft corals. You'll find 2 'cleaning stations' on the site, which attract manta rays (sometimes oceanic manta rays come by, they're MASSIVE!) and there's a high chance you'll see one or two leopard sharks resting on the sand nearby. The local fauna include white, black and silver tipped sharks, along with devil and stingrays... not too bad indeed! Moray eels craddle in the cracks in the reef, and if you pay attention you'll even spot tiny shrimps, Spanish dancers and other nudibranchs, scorpionfish and a few crayfish. As usual, you may come across some very inquisitive groupers!
