sea fans Paramuricea
davata. lesser spotted dogfish eggs Scyl orhrnus
canicula and red damselfishes Anthias
anthias swarms, are the inhabltants of Quall's Point. The
name was given by the hunters coming here and waiting for the birds passage.
The diving place is far from the seashore, we can find current and It's
easy to loose one's bearings with bad visibility. The dive star-ts
from the point to reach a rocky saddle (-30 mt) leading to the first of
two very big rocks. On the sea fans we find the wing oyster Pteria
hirundo, the filigree tube worm Salmacina
dysteri (Filograna implexa) and the ross coral Pentaporo
fascialis. In the holes the long spined sea urchin Centrostephanus
longispinus and some spiny lobsters Palinurus
elephas. A big number of lesser spotted dogfish white eggs
are hanged everywhere. If we look at them against the light, we see
the young fishes moving inside. Swimming at a depth of 35/45 metres we
arrive at the second rock where we have a very fine view of the top.
Here are very big bluish encrusting sponges Anchinoe
tenacíor. It's easy to meet big fishes of passage in a place
that lends itself to different dives.
