Ghana is located along the Gulf of Guinea and Atlantic Ocean, neighbored by Ivory Coast to the west, Burkina Faso north and Togo to the east.
Ghana has 560 miles long coastline along the Atlantic Ocean and has a vast area composed of forests, mountains, nature reserves and woodlands.
The marine life is similar to that of the Caribbean, across the other side of the Atlantic Ocean which plays host to a large number of Sting rays who visit for mating. Other fish species that can be found in the waters off the Ghanaian coast are huge snapper, barracuda, tunas and sharks (blue, hammer head, bull and thresher sharks).
Ghana’s waters are tropical with sea temperatures off Ghanaian coast a comfortable 24-28°C. The best time to dive is during the September to April dry season.
