Reviews about Mandolin

A dive site whose name comes from a musical instrument because of the harmony this dive site has. It is a deep beautiful wall, again with strong currents. Many schools of fish, a lobster, pipe fish, puffer fish and many species of nudibranchs live here. There are also many table corals, sea fans and especially the top of the reef is a paradise for photographers, you won’t want the safety stop to end!
