Do you love underwater labyrinths as much as we do? Then you're going to jump for joy now – the Cave Reef has a whole bunch of caves and channels ready for us. It lies in the northern area of St. John's and even has its own inner lagoon covered with coral – simply brilliant!
Measuring 400 metres in width and 1.5 kilometres in length, the Cave Reef is truly a 'huge rock' and a really exciting one at that too! The diving area on the reef stretches along a distance of 400 metres and a width of 190 metres, and as already mentioned, it is a great labyrinth. Here, at a depth of five to twelve metres, we dive through many caves and channels and see many sea fans, sponges and soft coral.
Whoever doesn't want to focus on finding the 'exit', but rather on the marine life, is better advised to dive with a guide. He or she will know exactly where we can easily fit through with our diving gear as not to damage the reef.
Once we've gone through the labyrinth, we can still explore the beautiful lagoon with its large garden of mountain coral. This area's got a very special resident – the seamoths – unbelievable creatures, although usually well-camouflaged and only approx. 10 centimetres in length.
- Seamoths: We can find these funny little fellows with their wonderful 'wings' and curious-looking bodies in the lagoon of the Cave Reef.
- Labyrinth: Either you visit with the help of a guide and avoid getting lost or you just dive in and mix it up a bit with some action, fun and excitement whilst looking for the exit. The Cave Reef's labyrinth is just grand!
