La Graciosa Diving areas
El Canal between Alegranza and the Roque del Oeste there is a 25-30 meters deep platform with a 35-40 meter big void where large quantities of species live within its cavities. Here big sized groupers, codfish and medregals proliferate, as well as red yellow and white gorgonians.
Montaña amarilla southwest of La graciosa next to Punta del Pbre and near the coast there is a deepening of approximately 12m depth that while we move away situates itself perpendicularly to the coast until it reaches 20m. this deepening is formed by stony slabs on sandy bottom where there is a great abundance of fish, specially seifis, red mullets , dogfish and Canarian lobsters.
Alegranza upon arrival we can already appreciate the abundance of its seaboard. From the boat we can see good sized crabs and limpet mussels. To dive in those waters is a privilege specially since the Marine Reserve has been founded. Special documentation from the Canarian government is required to investigate this area.
In those sub aquatic landscapes we shall be surprised by large colonies of gorgonians on points of very strong current. Fixed to the rocks they depend on the nourishment they receive through the water. The commercial fishing ban in this restricted area allows the fish to reproduce at ease, enriching the waters in quantity and variety. Fish like the labridos which in other areas have disappeared are as abundant as the red mullets which with their tactile beards anxiously search for nourishment in the sandy depths.
