Discovery Bay is a fun dive with a maximum depth of 12 meters, beginning with an easy walk from the beach; we then follow the reef out towards the headland, which forms the natural shelter for the bay. As conditions here are invariably calm this makes it the perfect site for beginners and trainees, and those of you who have been out of the water for some time. Yet many experienced divers and underwater photographers also enjoy the bay because of the diversity of life and excellent light conditions.
There is a wide range of sea-life ranging from the ever present shoals of Atlantic and blue-fin damselfish, bream, parrotfish, wrasse, lizardfish and pufferfish. More diligent searching will reward the diver with clams, razorfish, juvenile barracudas, trumpetfish, wide-eyed flounders, common stingrays, octopus, as well as cuttlefish and many other species. In spring many predators enter the bay at night to feed on the spawning fish. Some stay during the day giving close-ups of stingrays, anglesharks, barracudas and weaver fish. Visibility will rarely fall below 15m making this a nice easy dive full of variety and interest.
