Diving on the Camia wreck dive site.
Because it was a cargo ship, it is a long wreck. This wreck was sank more than 15 years ago which means that a lot of marine life and the underwater biodiversity are already very well developed on the wreck and all around it.
The pilot cabin is accessible and the wreck is in good shape and not dangerous. You can even enter in the engine room as well as in the cargo bay without the need of a guide line. There are holes everywhere where light from the outside can enter, so you can go out the emergency exits if the visibility becomes bad while you are exploring the wreck.
Many shoals of fishes are hanging around and if you never saw a stone fish or a scorpionfish before, you will see them for sure as they have literally invaded the wreck (look at the picture how good the stonefish can camouflage).
What will you see while you are diving on the Camia wreck?
Many things! While going down, you will see the wreck appear around 12 to 15 meters (40 to 50 feet), then continuing down, a shoal of batfish will welcome you. The juvenile batfishes are absolutely gorgeous with the black and glowing orange lines around their body.During the exploration of the wreck, you will see many stonefishes and scorpionfish, as well as shoals of angelfish, harlequin sweetlips, ribboned sweetlips, and different species of snapper and groupers.
School of Jacks are also swimming around and many shoals of tropical fishes.
