DESCRIPTION OF THE DIVE
We start a dive on around 3 to 5 m depth and follow coastline of Tmara island. Almost immediately we see big boulders on our right side and we keep on deeper side of them. Here you often see spider fish (Weever/ leopard fish) chilling on the stone. Suddenly we turn 90 degrees toward deep and come on bow railing of the big fishing vessel. We follow it and come on the main part of the wreck. It is standing upright and you can pass through crane on the stern. There is lot of interesting details all over the wreck and usually a school of smaller fish surrounding it. On our way back we go between the boulders where you can find some special see life and it looks like aquarium. Little swim through on the end and we are back at the dive boat.
