Dive Type: Boat Dive Depth: 15 - 20m Diver Qualification: Open Water Diver

 
This reef is seldom dived, as it lies the furthest west of Port Elizabeth. It remains in a pristine condition. There are two main gullies that run from an east to west direction.  A big over-hang marks the end of the reef.  The deep gullies give protection against the surge.With large coral growth on the reef, it makes this reef one of the most colourful reefs in the area.  Yellow tail and other game fish frequent the reef.
