This is a fantastic reef that is popular for learning divers. It is suitable for divers with all levels of experience but at times there can be a very strong current, which needs to be monitored. Less experienced divers should be careful of diving when the currents are strong. When the current is moderate, it makes for a great drift dive along the reef.
The reef site is made up of a coral reef that slopes down to about 22 meters. There is also a small wreck on the outside of the reef. The wreck is called the Andaman Explorer and is a former diving boat that sunk in the area. The wreck cannot be entered but it has become covered in coral and so full of marine life. Inside the wreck, you may also find some more shrimp and moray eels hiding in different corners of the boat. Instead of taking people out for dives, the boat now houses some Durban dancing shrimp, Box cleaner shrimp, as well as some snapper and the surrounding sand area often has pipefish, flounder and sometimes an elusive blue spotted stingray. Sometimes, a ribbon eel or two can be spotted next to the wreck along the sand.
The coral is both hard and soft coral and is in good condition. Most of the coral is hard coral and includes branch coral and staghorn coral. Amongst the coral, it is possible to see the normal reef fish such as butterfly fish, lionfish, triggerfish, moral eels, Moorish idols, sweetlips and some larger fish such as jacks, wrasse and trevally. Crocodile needlefish can be seen in shallow parts of the reef. Divers can also see cornet fish and trumpet fish, and they are quite common for this dive site.
Manta rays and eagle rays can sometimes be seen here alongside reef sharks. Leopard sharks are occasionally seen, with schools of trevally also familiar to the site; Hawksbill turtles can be seen by lucky divers in the deeper parts of the site.
