Description: I learned to dive here and the place has not become boring after close to 100 dives at the site. You have three options, laft-hand-side, middle reef, or the right-hand-side.

The left-hand-side is silty and drops down to 18 meters, if you dare to go that far into the abyss. The rocky reef on this side sits in water only 6-8m deep, thus the deep parts are just silt with some sparse sponge and weed growth, but are a great spot for many surprises, such as baby wobbegongs, PJs and lionfish, anglerfish and different species of pipefish.

The middle reef encompasses a group of rocks that are flat, sort of square and have little channels between them, so you can zig-zag your way through the maze. Lots of overhangs and great critters. Max depth is about 6m.

The right reef is a series of little rocky ledges, freestanding rocks and two swim-throughs. There are seahorses, weedfish, leatherjackets and many sea slugs here, so it is the most popular of the three dive sites.

Again, try CC at night and the magnificent city skyline will greet you in al its glory as you surface from your adventure.
