Dive Site Description
Once you submerge you will be amazed by the amount of marine life that can be seen in Green Bay. The site gently slops to around 3.5 metres where you will follow a pebbly bottom out of the bay swimming past some ancient amphora pottery which is buried in an among the rocks. Keep swimming straight and you will find fish rock. As the name suggests its literally surrounded by many types of fish, conman sightings include silver bream, damsel fish, rainbow wrasse, and ornate wrasse. Once you have finished having pictures and feeding the fish continue straight over a gentle drop off to 5-6 metres then follow the bottom contour to a rock face and descend to a sandy sea bed where you can visit the ancient Greek museum, whilst posing and taking pictures of the statues.
