Sataya Gota Kebir is considered the "Garden of Eden in the afternoon" and offers a perfect opportunity to experience the creatures of the night. Whether inexperienced or "Cousteau's little brother" - everyone will find his adventure here.
Sataya Gota Kebir - "Kebir" means "big" - is located west of the main Sataya reef. The water depth in the area that is dived is from 5 to 25m. The reef is about 140m long and has a width of about 80m. The anchoring place is well protected, usually right by a plateau with a depth of 5 to 15m. Since the current, except in autumn, actually always comes from the north, it is an ideal day and night anchoring spot - perfect for exploring the plateau in the dark.
To the south, the plateau is at 5-11m, dropping to 15-18m on the outer sides. At night it is teeming with life. There is almost a guarantee of Spanish dancers, this is what this place is known for. You can also find many kinds of shrimps, rabbit fish, parrot fish in cocoon, trompet fish, lion fish, gorgon heads and many more.
In the west you will find some bigger blocks at 22m. Except in the northwestern area there are small and big blocks everywhere. You will find among others, turbellaria, moray eels, small groups of hunting fish as well as snails.
In the north there is a lagoon with a beautiful coral garden, schooling fish and an anemone colony.
- Spanish dancers: At night, we can almost certainly request the Spanish dancers to take the dance floor. Of course, this requires some patience as well as a good sense of intuition.
- Lagoon: The beautiful lagoon with its coral garden and colony of sea anemones radiates in the most beautiful colours during the day.
