Bucear en El Hierro


Excellent diving very near to La Restinga. The bottom is made of cliffs and elevations that alter themselves and work as scenarios of an abundant piscicultural fauna. The prominent groups are breams and white breams, although in our journey we will find a variety of common isomeric fish: cichlids, abbots, dogs, roosters, trumpets, etc. The small caves and existent arches, more in the west direction, are occupied by abundant moray eels (another good place to find the yellow moray) and murres, just like diverse

crustaceans. There’s even a small colony of black coral at little more than 10m of depth. In the deepest area, the abundance of fish descends, although some light-colored ceriantharians are very photogenic and it is not uncommon to see pelagic fish passing by or to see large groupers. Sometimes there’s a lot of current in this zone, however, we have to dive guarded by the cliffs with some commodity if we don’t go very far away from the bottom.
