Depth: 10 - 30 metres (30 - 100 feet)
Visibility: 30 metres (100 feet)
One of the most southerly sites the highlight of this dive is the field of huge gorgonian fan corals which densely cover the sloping coral wall. If you can, make your entry above a canyon at 25m which runs down the reef wall, then drop into the canyon and exit into the blue at around the 30m mark. As you turn left shoulder to the reef wall (north) you will come to the start of the gorgonian fan field. Humphead Napoleon wrasse frequent the area cruising along in the top 15 metres. As you continue north the sloping gorgonian plateau rejoins the reef wall and the wall becomes vertical. You can either continue north, or if a current is running (likely to be north to south) turn and drift south. Spend plenty of time in the top few metres, making a long safety stop part of the dive.
