Bucear en El Hierro


Located in the west part of the damping area, the diving starts in a plain zone that keeps winning in inclination in the measure that we go away from the coast. In the slope we could highlight big eroded rocks of dispersed and various dikes perpendicular to the coast that

we keep on finding through all the journey regardless if we go to the East or West: these accidents group together the majority of the fauna, with small groups of breams, wrasses, wahoos, horse mackerels, and blue groupers. The dikers’ cracks are helpful as a shelter for moray eels and murres, being one of the areas where I have seen the most yellow moray eels. It’s also usual to see groupers at less depth (some are hugely big) and on some occasions “ranches” of abbots, although I consider that the best diving is found beyond the -25m, where there are more abundant fishes.
