Enjoy sprawling formations!
To view such sprawling formations in 360 degrees is a privilege enjoyed only by divers, with their ability to move around weightless.
At the Grand Canyon on land, the only thing you can do is look up. Underwater, however, you can look down into the canyon like you’re flying, and have a look around its cracks and crevices.
For the majority of gigantic reefs rising above the ocean, there is a very high likelihood that large sea creatures will appear. Such locations are known as “big spots,” and are a popular feature of any diving area.
These spots are particularly sought after by large animal and drift diving enthusiasts.
Given the history of land that was once above the water sinking into the sea, extremely uniform formations make us wonder “was this perhaps made by our ancestors long ago?”
While the truth of the matter remains uncertain, being immersed in the romanticism of sunken ruins is one of the joys of diving around formations.
Divers, find out the truth with your own eyes!
The sea shows many different countenances. Each formation—gigantic reefs, shallow coral, sandy ocean floor, inlets, caves, and more—has its own unique scenery and resident creatures.
Drop offs are treasure troves of large sea creatures and schooling fish
Drop offs are near-vertical drops from the top of reefs toward the sea floor.
Along drop offs the water is clear and the current steady, and it feels as if you’re flying through the air.
Perfect for enjoying underwater panoramic scenes worthy of film.
You may think of drop offs as a place where migratory fish swim around stunning geographical formations. But look closer along the walls and you’ll find that they’re a treasure trove of smaller sea creatures.
