Diving in this area is spectacular. The color of the water and marine life is similar to Caño Island . The big difference is the type of seascape, since in Caño Island there are isolated stones with wildlife around, while in Murciélago Island stones emerge to the surface causing a strong current that is formed at the first few feet deep. Once you pass these few feet, you reach the bottom to admire the underwater wonders, such as the bull shark or manta devil.
