“Good Dive site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Have done several dives at this reef over the years & can say I have had a very good dive each time, have always seen lots of moray & turtles,its just a nice gentle dive with the usual reef fish in large shoals at times.

Many shoals of fish and two resident giant napolean wrasse. Current can be strong depending on moon and time of year. Usually only dive club there.

“Stunning”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Be careful of the current & shallow water, wouldn't suggest novice snorkellers avoid it. Got some great photos of the drop off.

“Did not live up to expectations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

There was lots to see and some very interesting spots, but in my opinion, I got a bored on both the dives we did there... mind you it is still a very good dive... just did not live up to the hype
