Short Description

If you dived Chelsea reef at Wild Side just outside Port Elizabeth you would understand the name of this reef as it's almost a duplicate but only shallower at 14 - 16m deep.

Nice wide gullies with flat reef and broken rock where octopus, pajama shark, anemone, ferns, corals, sponges, sea stars and brittle stars can be found.

The odd yellow belly rock cod, red roman, cape knifejaw, jan bruin and other reef fish is in abundance.
