Dive Type: Boat Dive Depth: 26m - 44m Diver Qualification: Advanced Diver

Wreck or Reef? This mysterious dive site lies in the Shelley Bay side of Cape Receife. The dive site reaches depths of 44m and 26m at the “deck mounted gun”. Interesting caves and over-hangs can be found and explore in the deeper regions. This makes for a challenging and exciting dive. A definite favourite amongst advanced divers.

Cauliflower soft coral covers the deck mounted gun area giving it a beautiful white appearance.  Schools of juvenile fish can be found around in the shallower parts.  Cave Bass and Galjoen can be found in the caves.
