The reef rises straight from hundreds of metres depth and is washed by a constant N-S current so is plastered with hard and soft corals home to innumerable fish and a few turtles. The north end has a convenient platform at 40 metres where the sharks appear but only at dawn. You can then do a superb drift to the southern end. The southern ridge descends steeply and is pierced by a cave at 55-58 metres. This is a pretty awesome place to be and is only for the most experienced and well trained divers, well out of reach of the average PADI Advanced Diver.
