How is the diving in Montaña Amarilla?
Yellow mountain is a peculiar dive site with moon like rock formations snaking into the water.
During the dive we get to see small swim throughs and rock formations towering from the seabed until we arrive at the rock formation which we call the door. The door is situated in approximately 18 metres of depth and is a sight to behold.
During the second dive we stay at a shallower depth and can visit the dune like areas where we can find all kinds of different creatures hiding amongst the rocks.
These areas are ideal for the landscape photography capturing the beautiful rock structures winding out of the sea bed.

- Things to bear in mind: Conditions need to be good at this dive site due to the entrance and exit from the ladderinto the water.
