We will jump in at the northwest tip of the island and make a head first descent to 35m where we will find the top of the wall which drops vertically to 55m plus. We will swim along the top edge where we can see cactus, black and fan corals and the larger reef fish.

It has since developed very nicely as an artificial reef. The sealife include large red bass, bluefin trevallies, scorpion fish, school of batfish, occasional schools of jacks, some small frogfish and triggerfish, and a handful of curious trumpet fish. Boat access. A 10-15 minute ride from shore. Dive shop operators maintain permanent buoy markers to the immediate north and south of the sunken ship. Your boat will tie-off at either one of these locations and the group will descend along the rope. Depending on a divers skill level, there are 3 cargo compartments, an engine room, small forward room, and the captains helm that can be entered while maintaining a reasonable amount of ambiant light (weather/visibility permitting). Camia II is also known as The Camia, Camia Reef.
