Here are located the large stones that rise from the bottom several meters and that give name to this dive.

Diving ship support is necessary and the dive begins with it adrift. The direct descent will be made until reaching a level close to 30 m. Here are located the large stones that rise from the bottom several meters and that give name to this dive. We can stay diving over these stones and not descending much more but curiosity will make us reach the allowed limit of 40m and if we get distracted even more. At this depth we can only stay for 10-12 minutes, which will not give us time to travel the bottom for a long time. However, it is easy to find among these large blocks of rock an impressive diversity that will make it an unforgettable dive.

We will be able to see several colonies of Candelabrum Coral (Dendrophyllia ramea), which are increasingly deteriorated due to the effects of the lines and other remains of fishing equipment. We will also find numerous colonies of Orange Coral (Astroides calycularis).
