What to see

Mediterranean marine life abounds off Costa Blanca. Besides the many octopi, eels, and various fish species, there are interesting sponges and crustaceans hidden beneath the water. Larger species like dolphins and whales are common in deeper water, and may accompany you on your boat ride out to your dive site.

At incredible depths, some of the most bizzare creatures of the sea can be discovered. Phosphorescent jellies and dark dwelling fish are seemingly just out of sight.
