CATALINA COVE

Aruba

/ 1

Catalina Cove is a snorkel site where sometimes people go diving. It's a shallow dive site with a sandy rocky bottom and a great biodiversity. Turtles, emperor fish and sergeant majors are permanent residents. Catalina Cove lies on the fixed route of several tour operators. Therefore the fish have no fear for divers and snorkelers. Especially the sergeant majors will approach you very close as they are used to being fed. Feeding of the marine life is contrary to the guidelines of responsible diving and should be avoided.

Particulars

Catalina Cove lies on a sandy rocky coast. Look for a strip of sand to enter the water or swim from the white sandy beach of Boka Catalina to Catalina Cove. Try to reach deeper water to avoid the snorkelers and look for fish and turtles.

Warnings

Catalina Cove is visited by various tour operators and can therefore be busy at times. Varying visibility depending on the crowds. The dive site has a difficult rocky entrance. Watch out for pleasure boats.
