Had my 2 open water dives on this reef for my PADI certificate. Great reef for a beginner like me and great guidance by Ambra Dugaria my diving instructor. Will stay as the place where I broke my duck diving wise

Beautiful reef, very good viability, lots of sea life. Suitable for beginners and you can see a lot in a short period of time.

Not a phenomenal reef but we did see an octopus and a big shark. It's shallow so you can get a good view. Too many beginners came on one trip for my liking.

It was amazing seeing the reef, the only downside was that it had to be cut short as a tropical rainstorm started as we were out but it was kind of fun.

HP Reef sits beside a narrow channel where currents provide nourishment for incredibly rich growths of soft, blue corals, and support a large variety of reef fish. To witness a kaleidoscopic display of coral reefs, venture off to HP Reef.

Special request for 50th birthday to dive HP after 20 years! Although it was very strong current, it was fantastic and much like we remembered - our favourite spot on North Male Atoll.
