Gorilla chop (shore diving)

The dive site “Gorilla Chop” derives its name from a rock formation that resembles a gorilla chopping. This is a spot enjoyable for all divers. With a shore entry, the average depth is around 7 meters, with a maximum depth of about 13 meters, making it suitable for all types of diving such as experience dives, training dives, and configuration checks for technical diving. In winter, you can encounter many nudibranchs and rare underwater creatures here.
EANx, SIDEMOUNT, and Double tanks options are also available. Feel free to contact us for alternative dates or if you have any preferences.

Maximum depth 13m / Average depth 6m

It is possible to go diving even in conditions influenced less by sea conditions, such as during a north wind.

As points of interest, there are scattered coral formations on sandy areas, as well as small marine creatures such as nudibranch. About 100 meters offshore from the entry point, there is a pier where you can often discover rare marine life such as lionfish, and seasonal marine species based on water temperature.
