With over 20 miles of dramatic walls starting in 12 metres of crystal clear water, there is something for everyone to observe. Up to three guided boat dives are offered daily on two custom built dive boats. The healthy reefs are teeming with marine life from nudibranch, crabs and shrimps to barracudas, stingrays and many shark species including the scalloped hammerhead. There are swim-throughs and caverns to explore, and with visibility at an average of 40 metres, underwater photographers will be in their element.
