This dive site is a lovely little reef with a maximum depth of 40 meters and consequently, Ray Bahn, is often dived as a deep dive. There is good reef cover at shallower depths of around 5 meters, but the current can be very strong and so this site is normally only completed by more experienced divers. This is a beach dive, with entry from the shore, and conditions need to be checked before you begin your dive. If the conditions are suitable, this is a lovely dive with many things to see; the site has great visibility of around 20 meters.

The deeper spots of the dive have a larger number of species and the site is well known for different species of larger pelagic fish. If divers visit in January and February it is very likely that Manta rays will be spotted. Other common rays include stingrays and eagle rays. It is also well known as a dive site for seeing sharks. At the lower depths of 30 meters, it is common to see reef sharks as well as rarer species. There have also been a few encounters with the magnificent and enormous whale sharks, which are often cited as one of the best diving experiences possible.

The coral on this site is beautiful with many different soft corals and spectacular sea fans. As with all soft corals, it is worth having a closer look to see if any smaller marine life is taking refuge. Pygmy seahorses can be spotted here, as can shrimps and smaller crabs. The coral reef host many different species of marine life including lionfish, triggerfish, moral eels, anemone fish and clown fish swimming amongst the many different kinds of anemone, butterfly fish, Moorish idols, sweetlips and some larger fish such as jacks, wrasse and trevally.
