Max depth: 40m++ / 130ft++ General profile: 35m / 115ft for 10 min and then the remainder of the dive above 16m / 50ft
As in any good aquarium, you will find the more common reef species in abundance on this dive with sightings of less common species mixed in for a very interesting dive. At 40m are several very large gorgonian fans with black crinoids and soft corals in crystal clear water. You may also be lucky enough to see the giant guitar fish at this depth. As you swim along the shallower parts for the reef, you will soon be surrounded by small reef fish – schools of pyramid butterfly fish, scissortail fusiliers, damsels and blue and gold fusiliers are everywhere while the bigger reef creatures like turtles, trevally, giant sweet lips and reef sharks pass by in the distance. Amongst the coral, keep a look out for mimic filefish, long nose file fish, puffers, lobsters and blue and white banded sea snakes. Towards the end of the dive you will be able to see striped surgeon fish, clown triggerfish, long fin bannerfish and regal angelfish.
