Furio de Aigua Xelida Outside

After a brief 10-minute boat ride, divers will arrive at the captivating Outside Reef of Es Furio, also known as Tamariu Rock. This dive site boasts stunning rock formations adorned with flourishing gorgonians, vertical walls populated by callow and moray eels, and an abundance of vibrant swarm fish, occasionally accompanied by large species. To fully appreciate the underwater beauty, it is advisable to bring a dive lamp.

Tamariu Rock is home to various marine species including Flagfish, Chromis, Barrakudas, San Pedro (Zeus faber), Bream, Lippfische, Octopus, Moray, Sea Hares, Groupers, Nudibranchs, Sea Eels, and Clogs. Divers can indulge in the pleasure of encountering these fascinating creatures during their exploration.

Descending using the anchor line, divers will reach a depth of 16 meters where the reef awaits. This area is primarily suitable for experienced divers due to its depth profile and lower visitation rate. The reef features a series of rocky formations with steep walls embellished by abundant gorgonians. Owing to its pristine condition, Tamariu Rock provides a habitat for various schools of fish, such as the mesmerizing mackerel hunting amidst the sardine swarms, or the colorful flagfish seeking shelter within the gorgonian corals. Among the noteworthy inhabitants of the steep walls is the rare and remarkable Petersfisch, or Zeus faber. Lucky divers may even catch sight of a moonfish passing by during the appropriate season.

Divers should exercise caution while exploring this site, ensuring they stay in the shadow of the current as much as possible and avoid straying too far from the anchor line. This precautionary measure ensures a straightforward return path to the exit. It is imperative to adhere to all safety stops and minimize the need for decompression dives. Our experienced guides and instructors possess comprehensive knowledge of this area and provide a competent briefing, tailored to individual needs, to maximize the diving experience for every diver.
