What to ExpectCoral reefs abound, although shore access is limited. Very lush marine growth: giant brain corals, violet basket sponges, beautiful sea fans.One wreck, the Scarlet Ibis, was sunk in 1997 and rests at a depth of 100 feet, with a super-structure reaching to within 55 feet of the surface. Most sites are subject to currents and drift diving is the norm, although walls, caves and canyons can be found elsewhere. Local dive boats are rowboat-style craft known as Pirogues, which perform exceptionally well in choppy seas. Temps range from high 70s to low 80s year-round, with visibility at 50-80 feet. During July through September, Venezuela's Orinoco River reaches its heaviest rate of discharge and visibility may drop to 20 feet.
