The Dive: 
This is an exciting dive. If you swim out southwest from Qammieh Point you come to a vertical drop which takes you to a depth of 50 metres which than again slopes off to very deep water. An old cave that shows signs of stalactites is found on the southern side of the wall. This site is very popular for sightings of predatory fish such as barracuda, dentex and amberjack. A number of caves and caverns are located in the area but extreme caution is necessary when entering as the visibility can deteriorate very rapidly due to silt being kicked up by fins. If you are lucky Manta Rays are sometimes seen in the area swimming in the blue so are Amberjacks and Dentex likely to be seen roaming in the area. A big Grappling anchor is also found embedded in the area below the drop off.
