The Aquarium dive site at María La Gorda
depth range:26 feet
features: coral line submerged 6m deep , great and amazing variety of fish of all size and colors.
This dive site was a good opportunity to look at the reef fish in detail, rather than being on the hunt for the bigger stuff and with shoals of sergeant majors, chromis, tangs, snapper, goatfish, lobsters, large crabs and trumpetfish, there was plenty to take in.
A very aptly named site that was a relaxing dive. Because of the patchy reef, the sheer numbers of reef fish and the shallow depth between 3-5m, you could really believe that you were swimming inside a very large fish tank. Amongst the sea fans and sponges there were a few flamingo tongues on the gorgonians and an arrow crab attempting to hide. In the distance a 2 metre long Nassau grouper was lurking.
