How Hot is this Dive Site? click a star to rate it
Plateau at about 25-30m with very deep drop offs to the sides. Plateau is teeming with life. Lots of corals and sponges. This site gets large schools of Barracuda, large schools of Jacks and regular sightings of grey reef sharks. If you swim to the edges of the plateau and hang in the blue you may also be rewarded with sightings of hammerheads. Then as you swim back up the plateau towards the reef you will see a shark cage at about 18m abandoned from Cousteau's time here. The reef comes up to about 5m at it's shallowest and you can see a large school of bump head parrotfish, anenomes, sweet lips etc. A truly great dive site.

Perfect Symmetry. I had a ball diving with the baracuda. This site also gets grey reef sharks and that was what most other divers were interested in. I just loved the baracuda !!

Barracuda Turn. There really is something special about diving in the centre of a large school of barracuda. An amazing experience.
