MAX DEPTH 12-35M – BOAT DIVE- REEF DIVE- SCUBA DIVER CERTIFICATION+
Geronisos Island (also known as St. George Island) is definitely a more adventurous location! Located in the Pegia region of Paphos just a few minutes from St George Harbour.
Drop down onto a 12m ridge where you can find the entrance to a huge swim through hiding between the rocks. For those divers with the Scuba Diver certification you can peek inside the cave and follow along the top of the ridge. The reef here is made of volcanic rock, this means after the first diver has gone though small bubbles erupt from the reef.
For the more adventurous divers enter into the darkness and see the walls open up in front of you. With twists and turns, this isn’t one for the faint hearted! Exit this 30m long swim through at 18m from a crack in the reef. Begin to head down to the bottom ridge where you can often spot dotted nudibranch munching on a sea sponge. Once you reach the bottom ridge at 35 meters you will be amazed at how much colour there is on the reef. Pink, purple and orange algaes and sponges light up this ridge when illuminated with your torch.
In the deeper sections of this dive we often see dusky grouper and lionfish hiding amongst the rocks. For those on the top ridge you will see and abundance of juvenile fish including wrasse, damselfish and sea bream.
Three beautiful ridges (12m, 18m, and 35m) covered with pink and purple calciferous algae make up this amazing dive site!
Geronisos Island is often paired with Manijin Island for an amazing two tank dive!
