Dive Type: Boat dive Depth: 4-16m Diver Qualification: Open water

Short Description

As the name indicates you will find lots of yellow belly rock cod on this strech of reef. Average depth of 16m with wide sandy bottom gullies and walls going up for 4m.

As the reef flattens out deep crevises and broken rock starts where these shy fish hide. Big ferns with brittle starts picking up nutrients as the water passes down the gullies.

A huge variety of anemone, nudi's, reef fish and the odd ray. A few raggies have also been spotted on this popular reef.
