Scuba Diving around Ibiza - The West

diving Illa Gorgonia - The Island of the Gorgonias

Between Sa Conillera and S'Espartar there is a little uninhabited island archipelago which used to be haunted by whales. The natives hunted them, until there were none left, and they have never reappeared.

Today, the archipelago is a refuge for rare sea birds and a unique species of lizard. But the area is exceptional under water as well. From a depth of 33 metres onwards divers find themselves in a forest of red Gorgonias, a species of coral that is extremely rare in the Baleares. They require constant water currents - which they get here.

A diving trip for experienced divers will reach to a depth of 40 metres. The bottom is at 58 metres. But this should not constitute a problem, for even if one gets into the decompression range, the ascent automatically allows for the necessary stop periods. At 35 metres down the rock face opens into a large perpendicular cleft which provides a habitat for all manner of marine creatures, like corals, sponges, cod, octopus, lobsters, eels and moray eels. The ascent is correspondingly slow.

At a depth of 10 metres below the surface the cleft ends. The route takes you along the rock face sideways to a cave which is full of corals and well worth a small detour. From there we return to the boat.
