This is one of the most spectacular dive sites to do in South Africa and have been internationally rated in some publications as one of the top ten cold water dive sites in the world!
Although this reef starts with depths ranging from 14 meters, it tapers down quickly to depths of 40 meters. The trip out to the reef is 22 km offshore and approximately 45 minutes by boat. This spectacular reef generally has visibility ranging from approximately 15 meters upwards to 25 meters. There are spectacular drop-offs with abundant fish life and magnificent soft corals. Swim troughs, gullies and awesome topography are only a small indication of what you can expect to see at this wonderful reef.  Ragged-tooth sharks can often been seen during summer.
