La Cullera details

After after we obtain authorization for the marine reserve “Cabo de San Antonio” we can do this interesting dive located in a small valley near the cliff at a point known as “La Cullera” , we can recognize the dive starting point by the big bite that appears in the wall.

La Cullera

We descend to a bottom of about 9 meters depth and we follow the wall until we find the entrance to a large cave where there are usually Sea Cicadas, Croakers and some Eels.

The cave goes about 50 meters inside the mountain and a torch will be necessary to avoid losing the light from the entrance.

Once we are back outside we can continue parallel to the wall and heading to Cape San Antonio.

Away from the wall there are greater depths but the most interesting area is between 10 to 15 meters depth.

Large rocks covered in red algae and sea grasses are seen in this area with dots of sandy bottom where we can encounter OctopusGroupers and Croakers.

We can do this dive as a “pick-up dive” going parallel with the wall until the air gauge reads ‘50 bars’, at this point we deploy a buoyant signalling marker and we wait for the boat to pick us.

We recommend all the diving spots in the marine reservation of Cabo de San Antonio. They truly are “must do” dives for every diver that comes to the area of the Valencia Community.
