Scuba diving Wall. Dive sites with Wall

Scuba diving A wall is essentially an underwater cliff face, of either coral or rock, more commonly a reef edge that runs vertically, usually running from shallow to deep and drops off suddenly into the depths of the ocean. Walls are usually found around islands or continental coastlines where the sea bed which gradually slopes downwards, suddenly drops to the depths of the ocean. Diving a wall can be very exhilarating and requires good buoyancy control because there is no seabed to prevent the diver descending too deep. Reef walls usually have strong upward or downward currents running along the wall as the current from the deep hits the vertical rock face and rises, making it extremely challenging to navigate and swim which adds to the challenge Wall dive sites | Scuba diving sites with a Wall dive sites
