This day trip is a unique opportunity to see the Mushroom Rif and the Blue Cave with our dive boat. Its a two tank dive for divers, but also snorkelers participate in this trip with a unique visit to the Blue cave. Ask the dates.
The site is called Mushroom Forrest because the large number of mountainous star coral growing vertical on an sandy plateau for a “Forrest of mushrooms”.
The mushroom shapes occurred because the the coral heads have been bio-eroded at their base to narrow columns by boring clams and sponges. They make great hiding places for tiny sea creatures. The Forrest can be disorientating so a compass can come in very handy. There is a large cave along the cliffside where you will often spot schools of fingerlings, and from time to time a nurse shark can be found sleeping under the ledge.
Visibility averages 26 m (85 ft), wave action is calm and sometimes the current can be strong; the depth is from 12 m (40 ft) to 18 m (60 ft). Numerous species of fish and coral can be spotted here; flower corals, giant brain corals, anemones, turtles, porcupinefish, smooth trunkfish, yellowtail snapper, parrotfish, grouper, spotted drums, spotted morays, green morays, lobster and conch.
