Divers can enter this site through a small opening on the top of the reef at about 9m/30ft depth, where through the narrow fissure divers descend and swim towards the wall. Narrow at first, the “crack” looks more like a tunnel due to numerous overhangs seen along the way. At the end of this dive divers arrive to an exit located along the outer steep wall. The wall is pretty steep and drops deep down.

When to go

Diving in Honduras is possible all year round, though the rainy season lasts from July to January. Water temperature ranges from 25 to 29C/78-84F.

What to see

The wall is densely decorated with big colorful sponges, gorgonians, brain and thin-leaf coral. Schools of silverside fish can be spotted in the crack, as well as occasional seahorses that can be seen along the wall. Also seen around the site are numerous toad fish, barracuda, hunting jacks and permits.
