This another one of our favourites and excellent for under-water photographers. There’s often a strong surface current on this site so we use a rope to go down. At the bottom of the rope the current diminishes and it is possible to swim all around this fantastic dive site. These big boulders are fully covered in purple, pink, white and orange soft corals. There are bluespotted maskrays in the sand, we often see cuttlefish here as well as some ornate ghost pipefish. There are many porcelain crabs in the anemonees, lionfish hovering above the soft corals and scorpionfish hiding among the coral. This is also a perfect site for the fish identification specialty course.
