Washing Machine is a dive site presented by 7 canyons of various depths. The current runs fast and pulls divers through the canyons, pushing them from side to side and creating an effect of a roller coaster ride. Only seasoned divers can make it through the spins and enjoy the sea life on the way. In addition to being quite an experience by itself with its currents, Washing Machine features quite an interesting collection of underwater life.
