A beautiful reef dive outside the Heads
On this dive, you’ll find many stunning soft corals and sponges. At the base of the corals, you’ll see many large common seahorses. Divers are encouraged to bring a torch/underwater light or video light (or rent one from us) to properly see the colours due as they’ll fade with increases in depth.
