Scuba diving in Morocco is one such pleasure you just don't want to miss while on a visit to this magnificent North African country. Neither the Atlantic nor the Mediterranean coasts of Morocco are well known for its diving, but Moroccan diving sites have their own story to tell... It's one of the rare countries of North and West Africa that has so much to offer, in terms of aquatic adventure, to the tourists.
One of the reasons why scuba diving in Morocco has a bright future is the occurrence of favourable geographical conditions in the Straits of Gibraltar, which facilitates some spectacular views of rich oceanic treasures.

WELCOME TO MOROCCO!
Study of a marine map shows that the underwater relief in the strait of Gibraltar is deeper and steeper on the Moroccon coast than on that of Spain. The tectonic plate of northern Africa, from which the Rif mountain chain was formed, continues to shift towards Europe.
The Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean in the strait of Gibraltar. This creates a constant surface current predominantly eastwards (1.5 knots average) because the Mediterranean Sea is warmer than the Atlantic, and evaporates at a rate that cannot be as quickly replaced by the rivers flowing into the Mediterranean Sea. A number of currents are created, in addition to the tides of the Atlantic ocean, carrying food for marine fauna and flora.
The richness of these waters makes them a favoured crossing point for wildlife, such as dolphins, pilot whales, orcas and whales. There is also a third stream, deep one, which goes from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic Ocean. This current is due to the difference in density between the two bodies of water (a few thousandths, but it suffices). Furthermore, the verticality of the relief, added to the effect of the tides, prevents fishermen from dredging the bottom and laying nets.
The Strait of Gibraltar is a crossing point of choice for many marine mammals. The richness of its waters can be set at one year population of dolphins, pilot whales, orcas and whales. The fish also abound: grouper, conger, moray eels, bream, bass, snapper, bream, etc.. A trip to the auction of the port of Tangier will give you a good idea of the diversity of wildlife. Flora side, everyone who has been diving in Morocco will tell you the fields of sea fans, sponges and coral are real!
