MAX DEPTH 16M – SHORE DIVE- REEF DIVE- SCUBA DIVER CERTIFICATION+
This awesome shore dive is just a 20 minute drive from Cydive. Amphitheatre is located right next to Church Bay.
Amphitheatre is a great location for all divers with great topography features! To reach the entry point you will take a gentle walk down the cliff to the edge of the water. This section can be a little slippery but don’t worry our team will be there to help you! This dive begins inside the bay with a large sandy patch at 5m, on many occasion we find a group of squid here.
The amphitheatre feature is just right of the entry point, so can also be accessed by snorkelers. This feature was created by changes in the tides eroding the rock face over thousands of years. Once inside the amphitheatre lay on your back or look up to the surface for a fantastic light show. As the waves roll over the top of the island you can see the swells forming underneath, simulating storm clouds.
Continuing on from the first amphitheatre, there is a beautiful valley with the walls reaching from the sea bed to the surface. Along this wall you can often find Atlantic Triton’s Trumpet, these are huge sea snails. The shells have amazing patterns and colours but can also grow to be as big as 45cm. Further along this dive site there is a second amphitheatre and a feature known as the stage. The stage is a carved stone feature with a vertical opening acting as a skylight.
Maximum depth on this dive site is around 16m but there are routes which lead to 18-30m.
