The tongue of lava at Punta Ajones penetrates the sea and creates a vertical wall with the seabed of rocks. Further out you can find some deep diving as there is a ridge that drops down to a depth of 70 meter.
Lobsters, morays, octopuses, and sponge colonies surround the rocks and crevices of the wall with barracudas and comb groupers chasing shoals of mackerel and other small fish.

Arrecifal Dive Centre
We offer high quality diving instruction and daily boat departures to some of the most beautiful dive sites in Europe. We specialise in tailored packages for individuals and groups that include: diving, accommodation and car rental.From our Dive Centre in La Restinga, located on the southern tip of El Hierro, we dive more than 20 dive sites less than 15 minutes by boat. The Mar de las Calmas Marine Reserve is protected from the prevailing winds and is perfect for year round diving with visibility as much as 40m at times and rarely less than 20m. The area also gets the least rain and most sun in El Hierro. The underwater landscape was formed by volcanic activity and very close to shore the bottom drops to more than 300m. The seabed is covered in rocky formations such as pinnacles, big drop off's, caves and tunnels. The dense vegetation on the rocks gives rise to a large diversity of life. On the bottom and hidden in the many cracks and crevasses you will find Lobsters, Shrimp, Seahorses, Black and Yellow Corals, Anemones and Sponges. Swimming in the crystal clear waters you will see Tuna, Parrotfish, Groupers, Flatfish, Perches, Angel Sharks, Octopus, Sting Rays and many species of Moray Eels. Seasonal visitors to the area include Sand Tiger Sharks, Manta Rays, Whale Sharks, Dolphins and Turtles.
