Diving - The Blinders

Responsive image

DEPTH: 10-40 feet (3-12 M)


The Blinders, just around the corner from the famous Baths, is like diving the Baths' gigantic boulders in 35 feet of water. Huge boulders are heaped everywhere, covered on the tops with soft corals and Fire Coral and on the bottom with sponges and Orange Cup Corals. There are lots of swimthroughs and interesting overhangs harboring snappers and squirrelfish. Several of us enjoyed another Nurse Shark encounter but we were most fascinated by a Hawksbill Turtle that nonchalantly munched sponges right in front of us.
