Cueva de la morena
This is one of the most well known and famous dives in the south of Tenerife. About 30 minutes from our home harbor you will find one of the gates of underwater volcanic openings most known by divers.
30 meters deep and on the sand, we can stand before the entrance of this formidable cavity that can make us understand the geological forces that acted in this area.
Open to the ocean with the high depths near the point of immersion, it is common to see round stingrays (Taeniura grabata) and Giant butterfly rays (Gymnura altavela) in the area that goes from the deepest areas to the walls and caves that are in this dive. Throughout the rocky front, a large number of different types of moray eels, black moray (Muraena augusti), murion (Gymnotorax unicolor), moray eagle (Enchelycore anatina) reside continuously and although they look at us defiantly they are completely harmless for the Diver … if we do not bother them, of course…
In this same point, you can make up to three different dives depending on the experience of the diver. For advanced divers we can make even a special dive that exists in the area. It is special because it reaches 40 meters and also by the unique phonolitic roques that we can observe. Jacques Cousteau himself visited this immersion many years ago because of the huge expanses of brown garden eel that can be seen.
