    Tarifa (Spain) with Kiss and DiverTug scooter

    Hello,

    Some pics from our last dive in Tarifa (Spain). This is the most southern point of continental Europe, and is where the Strait of Gibraltar that communicates the Atlantic ocean with the Mediterranean sea is at its narrowest point, about 14 km between the coast of Spain and Africa.

    Currents are usually strong, but it is a wonderful place to watch sealife and it is plenty of history and wrecks.




    Map of the dive



    Start of dive, this was a shore dive.



    Flying on top of an Old anchor.




    Wreck of "San Andres" a paddle steamship:








    Maximum depth 45 mts, dive time 170 minutes; I was on a Kiss with Shearwater, my buddies on OC with lateral tanks.

    All three with scooters Divertug Torpedo submarino | DiverTug | Torpedo acuatico | navegacion submarina | underwater scooter | scuba diving - Inicio.

    Water temperature was about 12-13 centigrades, visibility that day was 6-12 meters (average is 8-18 mts).

    Myself on top on a roman anphora found at -43 mts. Notice the eel going away:



    A closer look of the anphora, there were two big octopus around:

    One of the three sunfishes we spotted at the wreck (it is a cleaning station for them):



    Myself coming out by the beach:



    The reason why I do not like aluminum tanks in the sea ( ):

    Punta Marroquí, the southernmost dive spot in the island is just amazing!

    The amount of sealife may be impressive, and I am under the impression that one day we will meet the big red tuna there. This is the right season!

    Big groupers, sunfishes, barracudas, sometimes turtles, and even dolphins can be seen there.

    About DPV, they are expensive, but it is just big fun and multiplies your dive range.

    Maybe we will meet there or in Gibraltar once of these days!
