Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Anemone Wall

This dive is a long one and you must go south from the dive entry point. Go through the "cut", a narrow channel visible before you go in...play the surges. Then one out of the cut, head south. You will soon reach a deep wall, the anemone wall is at about 70 Ft, at that point the bottom is at about 160; it's generally crystal clear. Seven gill sharks have been seen here. Expect sea lion company. It's a challenge to find the "cut" on the way back. To reach the wall, will take you some 20 min. You'll be back after 45 min. Temp is 55-62 F Take road from Antofagasta to Juan Lopez. Go around the hills to Isla Santa Maria. Go past the scalop farm and with a 4 x 4 go up the hill that leads you west. You will border lava outflows. This site is the southern most access by vehicle. You'll find it by getting out of thge vehicle and checking all access. You must walk with gear down to the rock outcrop. Just watch for the recurring 15-18 min surges that last 7 waves. Anemone Wall is also known as Pared de las Anemonas.
