It is a mystic place on the sea bottom. The divesite seems like a gateway to hell but a big rock closes the entrance. Hot water with gas bubbles comes out of the ground and strong sulphur smells through the diving mask. A volcanic hot spot!

    Looks like something from a science fiction movie – very surreal! The fish don’t seem to be too impressed though. Great shot, as usual, Norbert.

  • I never saw a similar place under water. I’ve been there twice and it was very special. Thank you Gary.
