This is a fantastic dive site with a canyon on one side and a large swim through on the other side. The reef is oval shaped and on the canyon side, there are some large reef blocks that are absolutely covered in corals and marine life. The current here is ever changing and can be quite difficult so this dive should only be completed by experienced divers.

The reef is relatively shallow, starting off at around 7 metres. The reef itself goes down to about 14 metres whilst the swim through is slightly deeper. To enter it, divers must go down to about 18 metres and swim through at an angle descending down to about 25 metres. The canyon then drops down to around 40 metres. The swim through leads through to a pool that has less current than the rest of the dive.

If divers come in the right conditions, then the larger pelagic fish are normally found in large numbers. Divers can see Jack fish, large schools of barracuda, eagle rays, grey reef sharks, massive schools of blue striped snapper. On the bottom of the dive, it is also common to see stingrays and tuna. The site is also well known for soldierfish, butterflyfish, parrotfish, triggerfish, fusiliers, and cleaner wrasse.
