Short Description

With up to 30m wide sandy gullies at an average depth of 16m this site is perfect for practicing navigation.

To the west the gullies close up and become broken reef with teeth standing up 4m in height. The reef breaks up again and forms large round boulders with white sand in between.

Large rays, raggies and loads of reef fish. The odd school of Half Beaks have also been spotted on this reef.

To the east the reef becomes a bit flatter before breaking up into big boulders. Lots of micro life on this reef. Nudi's, anemone, brittle stars, corals, ferns, sponges, shell fish and lots more.
