Cathedral / Mauritius Island

Cathedral
The diving starts at the cliff at 18m/59ft depth. Then at the top of the rocky formation it steeply runs down to 27m/89ft depth.
With the help of the torch’s light divers can observe lots of interesting small fish in the caves and caverns. Further on there is a large hollow where the water becomes warmer and plenty of lobsters and shrimps gather. The culmination of the dive is the entrance to the underwater cave that resembles the gothic interior of catholic cathedrals.
