Scuba diving in Twin Rocks
The Twin Rocks dive site is a marine protected area with sanctuary status, and for this reason the dive site is well known for its incredible biodiversity. At this dive site, divers will see two big rocks, hence the name of the site. The rocks can be found at a depth of around 14-16m/46-52ft. They are very close to each other, at a distance of only 1m/3ft. The surfaces of the rocks are covered with beautiful soft corals, enormous sea fans, and fire corals. Macro photography lovers will be especially pleased, because careful inspection of the many crevices on the rocks will reveal an amazing array of tiny creatures.
When to go
Divers can dive at this site all year round, because the average water temperature ranges from 25-30C/77-86F throughout the year.
What to see
In the waters of this dive site, divers will see thousands of species of tropical reef fish, including several species of anthias, damselfish, lionfish, surgeonfish, batfish, yellow snapper, and jackfish. On the walls of the two rocks, divers will see many different types of nudibranchs, mantis shrimp, Coleman shrimp, porcelain crabs, ribbon eels, and other creatures.
