Canons de Tamariu

Basic Level

Advanced Level

At a distance of about half a mile offshore, due east of the town of Tamariu you will find one of the most beautiful underwater sceneries of our coasts. The Canyons of Tamariu! The nickname for this dive site is "the five finger reef"

The gaps between the rock walls (formed in the shape of a hand) are oriented to the northeast and have an unparalleled appeal to both marine life and divers. The fun begins at a depth of 12 meters where the anchor chain is located. From here several great underwater routes can be followed to a depth of over 40 meters.

Between 14 and 45 meters.

The visibility is usually good here; between 8 and 30 meters horizontally.


When it comes to marine life at this site the list is endless, each dive at this location can be considered a real lesson in underwater biology. Several types of rockfish, large groupers, bream, barracuda and nudibranches are some of the many species we encounter here.
