Diving notes

The boat has to go South-East ~1.5km away from the shore. Watch for a plastic buoy (black or red) which marks the location of the shipwrecks. The site is a scuba park with a roped circuit. The total lenght is about 500m (1600’). The boats are aligned in the current direction. You must control you buoyancy in order to avoid to raise the silt and create a reduced visibility for the divers following you.
