National Park Washington Slagbaai

The dive sites on our North Coast are all in a protected natural area: Washington Slagbaai National Park. That does not just mean you have to pay a nature fee to get there, but the roads are unpaved and as a result not always passable. The dive sites on the North Coast are distinguished by the presence of many different corals due to a ridge-channel system in the reefs. The flow constantly differs in strength through the channels and hills and that means that basically any kind of coral thrives here.
