Inside channel - Cayo Levisa

A deep wall, but on the inside of the offshore reef. Dropping down beyond 30 metres, with fascinating rock formations bedecked with plentiful hard and soft corals, this is a great dive.

Typically done as a drift dive, as there is often a good current, this dive site delivers just as much as its brother on the outside channel.

Small caves, swim throughs, tunnels and overhangs give you plenty of places to explore, and the marine life is plentiful.

Cayo Levisa is a 'no-fishing' zone, and this seems to have given the fish a confidence injection! Up close and personal they come – looking for a snack perhaps, or just checking you out, and anything form Sgt Majors, schoolmasters to Yellow Tail snappers accompany you on this dive.

Barrel sponges here are huge, and it is well worth having a peep into them as you will find filament stars, arrow crabs and even dresser crabs. Large coral shrimps are also often found, and bright yellow, purple and red tunicates cover many of the coral branches.

Cuba is famous for its black coral, and there is plenty on this dive. Sunfish, free swimming morays and schools of oceanic spadefish complete the picture.

Our recommendation: Do this as dive 2 of the day following the 'Outer Wall' – it is a little shallower, and makes a great relaxing dive with the gentle drift.
