A dive safari at the Capitancillo Island.
Capitancillo is a lighthouse built on a coral island and is part of the Bogo municipality. There are three dive sites at Capitancillo, where the lighthouse dive spot is certainly the most spectacular.
The top of the wall is covered by numerous types of corals. Soft and hard corals are mixing together where many colorful colonies of tropical fishes are shoaling in the current.
The wall is spectacular as it is completely covered by soft and hard colorful corals, where gorgonians and sea fans seem to fight for a place as it is extremely and densely inhabited.
Our thoughts about the dive safari at Capitancillo.
This dive safari will be a long day, but what a day!
The uniqueness will be at the Rendez-Vous from a deep gorgeous wall down to 55+ meters (180 feet) to the different sloped walls at the south. A unique underwater fauna and flora is living in the area.
All scuba divers can enjoy the safari as the dives can start shallow on the slope to the top of the wall which is at around 15 meters (50 feet).
Schools of barracuda and fusiliers are also living in the diving sanctuary.
One more thing: Bring your underwater camera!
