Dive site: The Arch, Greece

Dive time: 108 min

Activities:
- Marine biology

Description:

3rd dive there

From Eastern beach, sand and some grass (pina nobilis, beautiful shells,) until after the entrance of the small harbour.  Rocks making the harbour built last year will become very interesting after a few years (lot of hiding places).

Large anchor 8m deep just outside the harbour 

Small fishing boat wreck  14m deep following the cliff.   Broken amphori

Vertical wall under the cliff, after 40minutes of slow swimming/watching, the first large vertical cracks (featuring short and narrow caves and chemneys)  long "finger" sponges.  Huge scorpion fish.

One lost fishing net well colonized (pina nobilis) 

Schools of oblades, damsel fish everywhere.

The arch is made by a W-E oriented rocky range  top of that rock 10m (lot of black sponges), top of the arch 17m and bottom 25.  

At the end of the rocky range, probably 50m (?) depth on sandy bottom.  Small schools of sea breams.  

 Not dived this time but beetween arch and western beach, a dump place of ancient village : lots of broken amphori.
