Cave Reef

Located in the Bastimentos National Marine Park, this twin pair of tiny islands is swept by a nutrient-rich open ocean current. Slightly cooler (but still warm!) water than the rest of Bocas means that the coral growth in the area is spectacular, harbouring sea life to match. The reef starts shallow, perfect for snorkelling, and descends beyond recreational safety limits. Very healthy corals, schools of tuna, large barracuda, snapper and parrotfish, and many species of nudibranch can be found. The water here is very clear; watch your depth guage! There are several caves here. They are unmapped, and do not have guide lines, so DO NOT ENTER. Travel time to this site is about 30-45 minutes depending on sea conditions.
Beware the following conditions: you can find medium-strong current, surge, excessive depth, and caves.
