Please note that the Fish Bowl has been closed on request from the National Parks. Exiting the Canyon through the Fish Bowl is not allowed.
Statement from the Nabq Protected Area Authorities:
Closing the Fish Bowl has not been an easy decision to make but after many surveys, mappings and visual reports, it has been found that the deterioration of the site has taken place and a closure decision should be taken to allow the fish bowl to recover and to be inhabited again by the marine creatures. It is well known to divers who have experienced this dive, even as recently as 10 years ago, that the exit/entry points now can be walked through [at an angle]. In the past it was difficult to safely exit or enter moving through a narrow gap. This loss of supporting material is unacceptable to the health of the structure and to the lifeforms it supports [glass fish no longer occupy this site]. As well, the greater risk of a diver being hurt from a collapsing piece goes beyond any argument to keep it open.
