A Well-Named Dive

This dive site is ideal for naturalists and those more interested in wildlife viewing than touring shipwrecks. Divers can view soft coral as well as a variety of colorful sponges. The dive is considered to be in the southern part of the island, although it is one of the sites that is very close to the northern coastline.

As the area is environmentally sensitive and the surrounding ocean can be dangerous, even advanced divers cannot visit the site independently. Fear not, as there are several experienced charter and dive outfits in Aruba that will be happy to guide you to the site, and perhaps several others along the coast as well.
