This is a 700m long mountain reef, with plateaus at either end at a depth of 30m. The reef is charecterised by many types of soft and hard corals.
One highlight being a patch of gogonias home to the long nose hawk fish which can bee seen there on almost every dive. There are a number of large table corals and amongst other creatures you may often come across big tuna, shoals of barracudas, white tip reef sharks and napoleon wrasses of all ages and sizes. Normally both dives of the day are done on different points of this reef due to the distance from the base. Diving this reef is also highly dependent on optimal weather conditions.

Diving Depth : 40 M
Trip Duration : 60 min
