- not as colourful as some other southern seas, but we have plenty of marine species, nothing too dangerous in our opinion. Bigger and smaller species, some can only be seen during a night dive, a few kinds of edible fish - so also a fishing destination, some cool jelly fish, rays, dolphins, sea horses, and more! We will be glad to tell you all about what can be seen underwater during the diving briefing!
