    Dive site: Karpata

    by diver-x Written Oct 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Karpata is on the north side of the island and is the last legal dive site before you hit the no-dive zone of the marine reserve. As a result there is a stunning amount of fish here. I got the feeling not a lot of divers venture out here and the coral was in good shape.

    Take the stairs down to the beach from the road and the entry is from the cement slab in the water.

    Our favorite Dive-Karpata

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Karpata is the Nothernmost named dive before you get to the oil tankers and Washington park. There are concrete stairs leading you down to the rocky beach. Coming early always ensures you will have the reef to yourself.
    This dive has a little bit of everything. Lots of beautiful hard coral and wildlife. This dive was our entire groups favorite.

    Dive Oil Slick

    by klasher Written Nov 26, 2009

    A great dive to do after Karpata. Hit Karpata early in the morning, you have to take a dirt road to get back on the two way road and this detour spits you out right at Oil Slick. They have a nice wooden dock with a ladder for easy access out of the water. This is a great spot to kill some time in between dives.
    Oil Slick get deep immediately so there are many stops to do a giant stride. Large hard coral formations and a very diverse, friendly fish population. As you exit, look under the deck for fish.
