Sundstraumen - a drift dive through a beautiful canyon and white walls
Sundstraumen is only accessible by boat and we can both use out- and ingoing current. When the current goes in we start in an incredible garden of anemones and kelp. Towards the canyon we drift along white walls covered with anemones and we continue drifting through the canyon, passing a large pothole and ending in a backwater bay. In the bay there is less current and we can swim back into the canyon and drift around to the pothole again. This is one of our favourite and also one of the most beautiful dive sites in Saltstraumen.
