Underwater attractions

To the dive site the possibility to swim from the shore. The average depth is 15m. Ressel is a very large underwater river. The entrance is in the river Célé with a length of 6 meters. A river perfect for training. Due to its depth, this place is for advanced divers. Water biology is unfortunately poor enough there. During the dive you can meet single fish specimens, and the rocks under the water are overgrown with a small amount of sea flora. Great place for diving training at low depths. Below the water you can find single small caves that can be affected, but also the water life in them is negligible. Water is often very bright and you can take good pictures.
