2 tank Boat Dive to Mushroom Forest, Blue Cave for Divers and Snorkelers

From USD $99.00
  • Duration: 5 Hours (approx.)
  • Location: Willemstad

The site is called Mushroom Forrest because the large number of mountainous star coral growing vertical on an sandy plateau for a “Forrest of mushrooms”.

The mushroom shapes occurred because the the coral heads have been bio-eroded at their base to narrow columns by boring clams and sponges. They make great hiding places for tiny sea creatures. The Forrest can be disorientating so a compass can come in very handy. There is a large cave along the cliffside where you will often spot schools of fingerlings, and from time to time a nurse shark can be found sleeping under the ledge.
