Kokomo

Scuba diving at Kokomo Beach

SKILL LEVEL: OPEN WATER AND UP

From Scuba Do it is about 40 minutes drive to Kokomo Beach. Drive towards Westpunt and turn at the traffic lights at the Centrum supermarket in the direction of Bullenbaai/Sint Michiel. From here on follow the signs to Kokomo/Vaersenbaai

You can park your car at the parking lot and get ready for your dive as well. Walk over the beach to the water and swim towards the blue line, the drop off starts at 5 meters.

 

At the left hand side is a pontoon that was used to sink the cars that are a few meters ahead at a depth of 23 meters. This place is called Car Wrecks. You can reach the Car Wrecks on the surface when you swim to the buoy which is a distance of about 400 meters! Beware of your depth, the car wrecks goes beyond the recreational depth limit!

The reef is hilly and you will find big mushroom shaped formations of boulder star corals, stove pipe sponges and brown tube sponges as well as swarms of creole wrasses and blue tangs. If you are lucky you can see green sea turltes or eagle rays.
