The dives are always carried out with the maximum safety measures, and a Professional skipper on the boat at all times.
Then you can see the different places of immersion, located in THE ISLAND OF BENIDORM AND THE PARK OF SIERRA HELADA.
1. BENIDORM ISLAND
In this area we can find diving spots for all tastes and levels; There are ideal diving spots for newcomers in this wonderful world, such as the points of Embarcadero and Punta Garbí.
There are also more advanced immersion points, the most experienced, such as Llosa, which reaches 35 meters deep;
You can also find places for all levels, such as the points of Cara Norte and Los Arcos.
Immersion of 9 to 25 meters deep, the rocky structure gives rise to hollows and the odd tunnel.
The games of lights between the rocks are spectacular, a pleasure for the eyes.
Apart from the impressive landscape, it also offers an explosion of life with large schools of fish, barracudas, eagles…
A characteristic of the waters of the island of Benidorm is its usual transparency, an aspect that divers always appreciate and more when it is combined with beautiful funds charged with life, as in this dive.
The suggested route consists in advancing from the buoy, parallel to the island and recognizing the cyclopean rocks and the life that harbor golden seabream, banks of bream and octopus, being frequent encounter with schools of spits.
When we drift towards SW, change the bottom of stones to give rise to another of cliffs, at which point we ascend to about -14m and approach the wall, the large rocks reappearing and, among them, elongated caves superimposed as a viewpoints, at -9m, which form great backlights.
A fantastic blue abyss at a depth of 35 meters. It is located behind the island of Benidorm (far from the coast and in deep water). A large variety of large fish, octopus and crustaceans can be seen in La Llosa.
In this place we can see life of greater size.
It is located about 300 m south of the island. Its highest part is 6 m from the surface. The environmental conditions of luminosity constitute a habitat of singular importance. It is frequented by predatory species such as Serviola, Espetón and Denton.
If it is our first time diving or we just want to do a simple and at the same time beautiful diving, we dive in Punta Garbí, next to the slope of the island of Benidorm. Sand bottoms where we can find ourselves, hidden under the sand, rat fish in winters and rares in summer. Crowd of moray eels and congers among the rocks of the island’s slope and, again, the sea eagles flying over the blue or half-buried resting in the background.
There will be frequent encounters with nudibranchs, clavelins and sponges and already in the sandy bottom that reaches -28m, some line.
With a depth ranging from 1 to 20 meters, it allows a very nice dive and suitable for all levels. We can see castanets, obladas, sarpas, scorpion fish, octopus, nudibranchs, moray eels … and vegetation on the rocky surface. A very attractive point is the Arch formed by the rocky soil. The nocturnal ones are especially beautiful. Occurring the sun appear some predators like congers and small life.
2. SIERRA HELADA PARK
La Cueva del Elefante
Located between Altea and Benidorm, it is an underwater cave known as the Cueva del Elefante, due to the formation of rock over the entrance. The entrance of the cave is 12 meters deep in crystal clear waters, once you reach the end of the cave you can see good examples of stalactites inside the chamber. The cave itself is 25 meters long.
La Cueva del Enanito
It is a shallow dive with a maximum of -14 meters and an average of about -8 meters, but that takes place in a circuit especially exciting because of the beautiful caves and chimneys that like authentic blue windows will amaze us continuously.
As soon as we descend we look for the wall and there the entrance to -8mts. to the Enanito cave, with a considerable cover but little interior route. After accessing it we can ascend to a surface where there is an air bubble. We descend again only a couple of meters to see an illuminated tunnel that indicates the exit through a window just above the entrance. Once in the open sea, the route consists of leaving the wall to the left, which is profusely upholstered with yellow encrusting anemone. This wall sometimes forms bends to the left, although if we follow the stones with more or less continuity are parallel to it, in a course of about 60º, we will arrive at some cyclopean piled stones that we can scrutinize and then take a 330º course to the wall , where after being forced to draw one of these huge rocks and ascend briefly to only -3 meters, we fall again to -10 meters and access the cave of the Elephant, which is introduced into the interior of the mountain and allows us to reach the surface where also there is an air bubble. Finally we descend and go out to the open sea and return to the starting point, leaving the wall on our right now
Small island located in front of the high cliffs of the Serra Gelada. Its main feature is the amount of octopus that can be found during a single dive, so it is also known as the “Island of the Octopi”.
DIVES IN ALTEA
Altea has a large number of dives that in Revolution Dive Altea we visit on a regular basis. Each dive site is different and divers always experience a unique experience. If you are learning to dive, continuing your training as a diver or if you are already an experienced diver, we are sure that you will enjoy your diving experience with us, here at Revolution Dive Altea.
In Revolution dive Altea, we have two differentiated areas for diving, the Cabo de toix and the Peñón de Ifach in the neighboring town of Calpe.
Peñón de Ifach
We dive in the foothills of this imposing solitary mountain with great cliffs, with a great diversity of dives, from shallow dives like the arches, to quite deep dives at the tip of the cliff.
Shallow immersion of the area, with a maximum depth of 12 meters, ideal to perform as a second dive after exploring the deep dives of the rock, in the dive we can see a small ship sunk about 7 meters deep.
Cabo Tóix is also known as La Pared del Mascarat, it is a long cliff that is gaining depth as we approach towards the end. In this place there are several dive sites with different characteristics despite being located one behind the other. Here you can find large rock formations, at a depth of 14 to 30 meters. We will also see a lot of marine life using the spaces created between the rocks as a breeding ground. We can often see groupers, large schools of snappers, stonefish and moray eels of considerable size.
Punta de la Raya
Located behind the mascarat point, it is together with the corner of the fountains, the perfect place to start in this wonderful world, we anchor at a depth of 4 meters on a sandy bottom, close to the posidonia meadow that separates us from the rocks of the point, we follow the path marked by the meadow and the rocks without stopping to observe the sand, in case we could see some ray, since they usually come to this cove to rest and we can observe the marks that they leave when leaving (from there the name of the diving point) until reaching a maximum depth of 7 meters, where we will observe large rocks full of holes, where a great variety of life is hidden.
El Rincón de las Fuentes
Located at the beginning of Cabo Toix, is another of our ideal places to try the world of diving, we anchor at a depth of 4 meters in a clear of sand and rocks surrounded by posidonia meadow, once submerged we will approach the wall looking in the multiple holes of it the life that hides there.
Located at the entrance to Cabo Toix, we will anchor at a depth of 8 meters next to a large rock that almost reaches the surface, the area is full of large rocks scattered over the Posidonia meadow, on the cliff wall we can see small “fountains” “Of fresh water that come from the bottom and the wall, since in the interior of the mountain there is a lake of fresh water and in this place it escapes to the Mediterranean, you can clearly see the contrast and the mixture of salt and fresh water, with a water temperature that rises which is 19ºC all year round.
This immersion is characterized by a huge piece of cliff that fell to the sea several hundred years ago to the sea and its small grottos and caves, which we can visit during the dive, we will anchor in front of that big rock at about 8 meters deep and we will move along the wall at the foot of the cliff, between the wall and the Posidonia meadow.
Jardín de Neptuno
A very cool diving site that offers a wide variety of types of seabed, large stones with a channel in the middle, which is our anchoring site, at 16 meters. Once in the background we will pass over the Posidonia meadow towards the wall, where we will find a huge platform of rock at the bottom full of holes that look like pots, where we will be able to see octopi, moray eels and conger eels, and then go under an arc of stone and back towards the ship.
In the center of Cabo Toix we find El Rincón, where we will anchor about 8 meters deep in an area of rocks just in front of a large cave on the surface, in this area we will find many caves and siphons that we will visit with great care.
Punta de la Luz
One of our favorite dive sites in Cabo Toix, we will anchor on a rocky platform 6 meters deep, and in the immediate area we can find sandy bottoms, Posidonia meadow and many rocks of all sizes, a place that the mere for the ease that there is to hide. We will also visit the wall, where we can see how in the lower part there is a veril that goes into the mountain, in whose roof it is common to find nudibranchs like the beautiful Swiss vaquitas.
So called because of the statue of a bear that was moored many years ago, located at a depth of 24 meters, we will anchor at a depth of 18 meters and from there we will descend to visit the statue and the area around large rocks. Being the final area of Cabo Toix, we have several environments that offer the greatest variety of fish life as it is a mixture of sandy bottom, Posidonia, large rock formations and open sea, it offers us a lot of opportunities to see a great diversity of marine life. From El Oso, we will regularly visit Cueva del Oso, a fantastic experience for those who wish to enter. One of our hidden secrets of Cape Toix.
It is the deepest dive in the area reaching 28 meters deep, characterized by large rocks detached from the tip of the cliff of Cape Toix, is a frequent passage of large banks of barracudas and in the stones of the bottom we can see.
The perfect place for all levels of divers. Located in a small cove that is only accessible by boat between Altea and Calpe. It is anchored to a depth of 5 meters. Here you can do dives to a depth of 18 meters. Large schools of small fish make this place perfect for all levels.
DIVES IN JAVEA
The coastal seabed of Xàbia is one of the richest and most valuable enclaves of the Region of Valencia.
From the cliffs of Cap de Sant Antoni to the transparent waters of La Granadella, passing through Calablanca, Cap Prim, Portitxol bay, Cap Negre, Cap de la Nau, Ambolo beach and l’Illa del Descobridor …, its waters have attracted the interest of numerous social groups.
These sea beds are a faithful reflection of the varied topography of its coast (cliffs, islands, rocks, beaches, coves).
This, together with the high quality and transparency of its waters, make this enclave of the Mediterranean an excellent place to practice scuba diving with bottles.
Without doubt one of the best places to snorkel. The Cova Tallada can be accessed by sea, being highly recommended to do it in kayak or canoe, or through trails through the Montgó. Once there we will enter the water from the same cave or from the other two windows in the wall that is open to the sea We found a turquoise bottom where the water is usually calm when forming a kind of pool protected from the open sea by a rocky tongue. The suggested route is to surround the interior of this area leaving the wall to our right.
1. Cala Tangó
The small cove of Tangó or Pope, as it is also known, is located to the left of the north breakwater of the port of Xàbia. The access is not easy, since we have to walk on some rock blocks of the coastal edge under the terrace of the restaurant. The proposed route will take us to the wall that is to our left and during the way we will find some cliffs that protrude from the water. As we move away from the coast, the depth and size of the bottom stones increases little by little, until it reaches -3 m. begin to make their appearance the first bushes of a leafy meadow of Posidonia oceanica.
2. Cala Blanca
Leaving behind the busy beach of L’Arenal and heading south, we reach Cala Blanca. If we continue walking about 300 m. more we will arrive at a second cove, chosen place for our marine journey. It is a small cove that has a point that is inserted as a rocky appendage in the sea. From here we can enter the water and discover a brilliant rock bottom. The depth is very small, -1 m., Although as we move away it will gradually increase. Once the point is turned and opening to the sea, you can access a leafy meadow of Posidonia oceanica. If we get closer to the rocky tongue by the northern part, the sandy area returns and then again the wide rocky platform covered with algae.
3. La Barraca
The bay of La Barraca is one of the coastal enclaves with more personality, not only of Xàbia but of the entire Valencian Community. In this small large cove of gravel and bowling, the possibilities of enjoying snorkeling are very wide. Let’s opt for the northern area of the cove. Once in the water we can see that the rocky platform is segmented, its continuity is interrupted by fractures that give the bottom a square appearance. As we go further into the sea, the platform gains depth in a soft veril for, in a moment, great rocks and tongues of rock appear, like submerged islets, that we can surround and that give way to areas of oceanic Posidonia and sand.
1. Portitxol Reef
To get to Ambolo we have to go to Cap de la Nau to the detour to the cove, which we access through Richard Wagner Street. Initially, there is a rocky bottom with medium-sized stones that, as we go forward, move in posidonia meadow and in dazzling sands. The proposed route consists of turning the islet that we find in the left zone, rotating it and recognizing the infinite points that will attract our interest, since the variety of funds allows an abundant biodiversity.
The Bay of Portixol
Passed the island of Portitxol in the direction of Cap de la Nau we find a small islet, known as the Mona or Maria Claudia. In this dive we propose a circular route around it and it is convenient to anchor in front of it so that we stay in a southeasterly direction. Soon after submerging us following the anchor line we will find the entrance to a natural chimney at a depth of between 7 and 11 meters. In it, windows are opened in which spectacular lighting effects are created. To the chimney we will nevertheless accede in the final section of the immersion; before we will go around the reef, whose walls descend progressively, in gentle slopes in some points and in abrupt cuts in others, offering gaps and covachas always full of life. The bottom is at a depth of between 15 and 22 meters and is sand with large rocks. It also extends a parallel rock tongue that can be traced back to the starting point. At this time we will access the fireplace with care that our fluttering does not cloud the water.
2. Cape of San Antonio Reef
Before reaching the Cap de Sant Antoni Lighthouse we will find an inlet in which a buoy announces the limit of the Marine Reserve. We can tie the boat to it and descend to about 16 meters deep, to a bottom formed by large scattered rocks and sand. Remember that this is a protected area and prior authorization is required for diving. In the same way, it offers an exceptionally beautiful and lively environment, prolix in species difficult to see in other points such as the sea cicada, the gilthead seabream, the conger eel, the grouper and curious formations of white gorgonia. It also has the advantage that the irregular dispersion of the rocks and the moderate depth allow us to improvise almost any route; Anyway, our proposal is to gain depth in the opposite direction to the coast. Then, to the right, a large elongated rock formation will appear that surrounds itself to continue heading 270º and we will find new rock formations where life abounds in the form of corvinas, brótolas or groupers.
3. Cabo de San Martín
This dive is located just behind the Cabo de San Martín, in a nook which here makes the orography of the area, is protected from the northern winds and is perfect for novice divers since the descent is made by the anchor line that It is only 6 meters deep. From here we will go in search of the same Cabo de San Martín where we will reach the maximum depth around the -22 meters, this dive is characterized by the large slopes that make the large rocks that make it up and it is usual to find ourselves in this area with slippers, lobsters, banks of breams and castanets and among the rocks there are many spirographs and sponges, to the delight of photographers.
4. Cabo Prim (Cueva de la Virgen)
At the southern end of the bay of Xàbia is the Cap Prim and, in front of it, an islet. We can anchor between both accidents in an area of 6 meters deep. From here we can gain depth to find, about 50 meters from where we have anchored, 2 entries on the ground that are the entrance to the Cave of the Virgin. It is necessary to enter with care to try not to remove particles of the bottom, since it would muddy the water and make difficult the vision. It is easy to find corvinas and broccoli. You can also see groupers, conger eels, moray eels, octopus and other species of dark areas such as wrens. At the back of the cave there is a painted tile image of the Virgen de los Desamparados. The backlighting from inside the cave is perfect for photographers – as long as they are the first to enter.
When leaving we will follow the wall and we will gain depth until reaching 22 meters. It is advisable to pay attention to the many holes in the wall as the presence of life is abundant and you can find some lobster. After a few meters you will find another tunnel with arches and beautiful backlights.
