 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): Rabo de Asno is a wide tunnel which crosses one of the Farilhões islets at approximately 30m deep. Although one can see both openings throughout the entire dive, lights are required (including backups). Inside one can find some large fish (Conger conger, for instance), sea fans, lobsters, spider crabs and occasional sea slugs.
One should not miss the outside walls as they're covered with violet sea fans (Paramuricea clavata).
ALso pay attention to the open waters as some pelagics may also be seen, like large schools of jackfish (Seriola rivoliana) or triggerfish (Balistes capriscus).
