REDIHO Dive Site near Santa Cruz
Due to the position of this site in relation to shoreline, winds and currents; REDIHO is a very unique site because the currents force a flushing effect to happen that constantly washes over the steep drop offs & beautiful weaving sand channels.
With healthy soft corals and hard coral formations, the macro population is booming and like Duane’s Release, a great environment for finding seahorses and frogfish.
Deep water currents provide this rarely visited dive site with excellent visibility and make it a good site to spot some larger marine life. Probably, the best change to spot seahorses, as well as eagle rays. Mooring depth is 15-ft, so the safety stop is spent hovering around numerous soft and hard corals.
Beautiful sandy channels and steep topography give this dive site a unique feel. Eagle rays, turtles, Barracuda and porcupinefish are regularly spotted here. A unique dive site with a best viewing depth between 35-ft to 85-ft.
