Most divers at Whytecliff park like to explore the deep. They skip the inter-tidal zone or what lays just beyond it. Well, you are missing out, if you are one of those divers . This is the latest installment of 4 Underwater Creatures In a minute, highlighting 4 creatures that live in the shallows.
There is a great biodiversity in this region at Whytecliff Park. Most of the creatures blend in with the sandy bottom and are hard to spot. Because of the shallow depth they live in, you can spend some quality time with them. It is a perfect place to do your safety stop and hang out for 10- 15 minutes exploring what lives in the eelgrass or swims around the pillars of the old dock from the 40s and 50s.
My challenge to the divers in my audience. Don't use a up your air in the deep , stay 15 minutes or more in the shallows and explore it and find all those wonderful critters out there.
Please report back and let me know what you found.
