Can only dive when sea is calm as site is very exposed just north of port
Only 14m under the boat but only a 20m swim to the west takes you to the breathtaking drop off.
Down the wall look out for the small black coral branches covered in tiger anemones, and make sure you check the small cracks and caves for the morays and toadfish.
The wall levels out at 45m and the ledge is covered in large elephant ear corals
It drops off again and the question is how deep do you want to go? – Tech divers paradise!
Follow the wall along to the north and then after the turn around swim back along the top of the reef
