Ambiance Fresh water Lagoon
Crystal clear water, floating water lilies, and a fresh water bed of broad-leaved plants are what creates the fairy tale called Marico Oog. This place of magical beauty is home to various fish species, crab and fresh water eels.
Apart form great daytime dives, the highlight of Marico oog is the intimate night time dives of a 12 meter maximum depth, with a blanket of stars and moon shining down over you through the water...
Marico Oog consists of four swimable parts. The first is a +-10 meter stretch, +-1.8 meter deep and 2 meters wide through a pond covered by floating water lilies. The lilies have stems that trail away lazily to the bottom. The bottom of this passage is covered with a green, broad leaved plant that gives you the impression of swimming over a lush carpet.

Hendrik Coetzer March 2nd, 2020 - 19:38:Crystal clear water, unless you kick up the silt... saw carp and even two koi's. Lots of small crabs as well. A natural spring, with fresh crystal clear water bubbling up from a 13m deep hole, where bottled eater is being pumped out. Very nice place to dive and camp. No hot water when we were there, but awesome clear starry sky as its situated quite far from closest town with lights.
