diving Laja del Almirante

La Laja de Almirante, also known as Laja de las Gorgonias for the abundance of the gorgonias found there, is located one mile off the coast, in front of Torre de Calahonda.

The dive starts with a descent to the depth of 23 meters following the mooring line. At the bottom we find a large rock formation in form of a curving wall. Most of the wall is just a meter or two high, at places reaching height of 4 meters. Continuing the dive following the wall we can see how it is cluttered with holes and crevices that give protection to many marine species, such as big meros, brotolas and langostas. The wall is covered with algae, some interesting sponges and beautiful sea fans.
