Blue Channel is a wide, shallow channel that runs parallel to the Sueno del Маr shore. Starting from the inner part of the reef, there is a swimthrough that cuts in toward the shallow reef. The northern wall of the channel has overhangs and the southern wall offers caves and lots of swimthroughs. The site is suitable for all diving levels as well as snorkelers.

When to go

Diving is available all year round, though the rainy season usually lasts from October to February. The average water temperature is 27C/81F from January to March, and 29C/84F from July to September.

What to see

Divers can explore a stunning coral life starting at the wall, where they can find plenty of barrel sponges and tiny coral heads covering the deep sandy slope. Marine life is in abundance and features schools of goatfish and snapper swimming through the channel, along with turtles, octopuses, green moray eels, giant hermit crabs, huge schools of silver sides (especially in the late summer), tangs, grunts, triggerfish, juvenile grouper, barracuda and other species.
