Mike’s point gets its name from Mike Severns, the well-known diving photographer who spent many hours diving this site. It is obvious why he picked this site to focus on; with its amazing finger corals, lettuce coral and huge coral heads the wall itself is an amazing spot to take photos. An abundance of soft corals wrap this wall and consequently, it is still home to a large range of reef fish, and so it is still a great spot for fish portrait and coral photography.
The wall is also very attractive to fish, with large pelagic fish in abundance. Huge bump head parrotfish and Napoleon wrasse are common as are turtles, and sweet lips. On most dives sharks make an appearance, as do fusiliers, snapper, moray eels, snapper, butterfly fish, angelfish, and many other types of reef fish.
The currents can be very strong at times and whilst this draws many smaller reef fish, it also means that divers should take care at the site and should plan their dive to allow for the currents. The currents can sometimes turn downwards due to the speed and so the dive plan must include planning for this.
