 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): Cavern reef is situated at the western side of Catal Ada. The tips of the reef are above sea level. The main reef is approximately horseshoe-shapped with the open side of the horseshoe westward. Usually the dive boat will anchor at the outside of the reef which is facing Catal Ada.

While diving I recommend to start diving along this outside of the reef. In about 12m depth the horseshoe is ending in a sea grass field. If you now continue descending in the given direction, over the sea grass field, in about 18m you will reach a rocky area. Continue following the original direction over the rocky area, you will reach a second, small reef which tips are reaching the surface as well. The bottom of this reef is in about 35m and in that area you will find groupers and moray eels of considerable size.
Following the bottomline of the reef you will reach an ancient stone anchor. At that point start following the backside of the reef towards shallower water and the rocky area again. All the way you will find the whole diversity of the marine life of the Aegean Sea. Later on, over the sea grass field, back to the horseshoe, you should try to find the inside of the horseshoe. There you will find two small caverns. Their walls are really nice covered with marine life. Through both caverns it is easily reach the outside of the reef and to dive back to the boat. You don’t need any torch for that. At every time and from every place in the caverns it is possible to see both exits.
