It provides the opportunity of admiring the largest black coral reserve in the seas of the greatest of the Antilles.Experts have classed the depths of María la Gorda as within the top 10 of the Latin-American subcontinent, in view of its abundance in marine species and the extraordinary beauty of its coral formations. The most special characteristics of the area is the presence of coralline formations, including black corals, at a depth of 14 meters, as well as marine species such as barracudas and red snappers. Canto del Veril marine platform is around 300 meters from the coast, that´s why its 50 diving points are so close. Here, divers can enjoy of its amazing and colourful marine flora due to the gorgonian variety that live there as well as the black coral reef considered the biggest reserves of the entire Island. The marine fauna is marvellous and plentiful, mostly in August caused by the whale-shark visit. More than 20 species of coral and lots of small and medium size fishes, lobsters, morays and crabs can be frequently seen in these bottoms.
