The reef was named after the first big fish the divers has seen, the Scotsman.This reef is covered in both hard and soft coral. Red-bait pods cover the top of the main pinnacle. On the western side the wall has a sheer drop of 10m. A beautiful sand gulley stretches the full length of the reef. This site is excellent for divers doing macro photography.
Silver and Gas Flame Nudibranchs can be found in abundance here. This site is excellent, if you are looking for very rare nudibranchs. A wide variety of sea anemones covers the wall. Miss Lucy's, Scotsman's and Cape Knifejaws are just some of the fish that frequent this area.
Also known as Moonie
Moonie, is the Wildsides latest discovery and is certainly a great dive for all, even advanced divers. Situated between Mark 4 and Suicide Reef, its central point is a red bait decked mound with deep cracks or crevices and a wall dropping off to a sandy bottom on the land side of the “mound”.
Truly spectacular with all the purple seaweed which waves back and forth hiding small and big Rock Cod, bronze Bream, Hottentot and a variety of reef fish. Colourful Nudi Branchs can also be spotted by the more attentive diver and extends from Moonie itself further out to sea with all shapes and sizes of gullies and rock formation.
On a sunny day the white bottom sand reminds one of the tropical waters (but not quite as warm!)
Of particular interest is the variation of rock gullies and white sandy bottom which coupled with fish life actually makes it easy and relaxing to dive during most weather conditions.
