The second biggest rock of the Farillions, neighboring Rabo de Asno (Tail-of-Donkey), has caves and a wall of gorgonias. Usually we start the dive on the East part, near a small cave full with gorgonians only at 5mts of depth. Than we go West with the wall on our right side and we will find a second cave. Here, on the ceiling we can find fresh water that doesn't mix with salt water. However, we advised you not to enter it because the visibility is bad, so keep the wall on your right and go till the end, where you can find canyons with gorgonians.
