Description: A North/ South running strip of limestone reef that has a very good covering of hard and soft corals. Plenty of swim throughs and ledges but only 1 big cave towards the northern end. Shallowest part of the reef is around 13 metres with most of it around the 15-17 metres, it can get a bit deeper towards the southern (27 metres) and western side(22 metres). This dive site supports a very diverse marine ecosystem and a macro photographers paradise when the vis is great. Not all that good for crayfish.

Hazards, none really except the sites proximity to Parker Point and the associated boat traffic.
