Often named ‘Dolphin House’, this offshore reef is shaped like a horseshoe and creates a naturally protected lagoon to moor in. Usually with very good visibility, here the diving is stunning: a labyrinth of pinnacles, some steep drop offs on the outer walls, table corals bigger than you are likely to have seen and a stunning ‘Cathedral’ swim-through at 5m.
A pod of spinner dolphins uses this lagoon as a nursery and shelter and the chance to snorkel with them in between dives is the ‘icing on the cake’. If you ever figure out which way to look when you have 50+ dolphins playing around you, be sure to let us know!
