This is a fantastic dive site that has a very interesting topography. The dive starts out as a sandy slope that then leads into a steep wall. This then turns into a cave where divers can enter to discover the chimneys. These are large holes through the reef that divers can then swim through up to shallower parts of the dive.

It is a fantastic dive to explore but as the currents and wind can be very strong here, it is often difficult to dive here. The area is also subject to a lot of fishing and so the marine life has been affected and is not as populated as it was. The maximum depths here are around 20 metres but the currents often mean that inexperienced divers would struggle at this site.

Coming down from the sandy slopes, divers will find many garden eels and also usually some white tip reef sharks. The reef is covered in soft corals of many colours that are normally yellow. This has led to the main chimney being called the Golden Chimney. Divers can normally find anthias, filefish, hawkfish, pipefish, nudibranchs, and groupers. Within the chimneys, there are sometimes some resident tuna and barracuda and sometimes divers spot grey reef sharks as well at this point.
