Description

Kuba West dive site is a tall pinnacle that drops down to about 40m, with the top sometimes piercing the surface, depending on tides. Drop down to about 25m where you’ll likely find a couple of pygmy seahorses hiding in giant pink seafans, before winding your way up and around the column where you’ll find pretty soft corals, anemones, parrot fish, banner fish and if you’re lucky – a blue tang (Dory).
