Description: Another relaxing dive site! This was the first place I have ever seen/dived with a Manta Ray and it was a pretty big buzz as it slowly came in looked us over then glided away.

Once you clear the ring or coral around the island and drop down onto the sand you will pass a huge and I mean huge single bommie of Porities Coral. This bommie is 20-30feet high by about 100 feet around the base, this coral has to be thousands of years old to be this big.

If you like Christmas Tree Worms, then this site has thousands of them in every colour imaginable. Nudibranchs and other macro life are easy to find for those who look, lets not forget the huge Potato Cod that love to be fed as well.
