Trevor's Rocks & Brady's Corner

Here are two dive sites located in Maroro Bay that you will do if you're a first timer, a bit rusty or if you're in a course! Very calme and diverse, they sport some rocky pinnacles that attract a very diverse marine life, 2 caves (Big Eye and Shark Fin) and an arch (El Torito). The shallowest part of those site is around 4m deep and the deepest, along Great Wall, reaches 30m. Wander around the few remakable features, enjoy the big sandy patch where the stingrays are resting in the daytime, forage in the kelp and stumble upon moray eels and eagle rays, scoprionfish and nudibranchs! Meditation Wall separates the 2 sites: it is slightly overhanging so the divers have to assume a meditative hovering position while searching for the rare shrimp or nudibranch.

Both those sites are incredibly rich and dense in fauna and flora, there's always something going on (dolphins, sunfish, orcas and humpback whales have been spotted underwater here!) and you will want to dive back here without a doubt! Enjoy!
