very reasonable multi-level dive site, which takes divers around pinnacles and large rocks. There is a fair display of hard and soft corals, and the usual reef-fish are present in reasonable quantities.If you are lucky you should be able to sight small reef sharks, but the main attraction is probably the presence of large bullethead parrotfish. However, diving here can be extremely hazardous because of the hostile currents under no circumstances should this site be attempted by any but experienced divers.
Watching out for the Reef: Coral Conservation Guide for Divers
• Avoid touching live corals. You can kill them with your bare hands.

•Maintain a comfortable distant and enjoy
Many divers unintentionally destroy corals whilst diving.
Here are a few guidelines on how to avoid doing so.
• Use the correct amount of weight to aid in your buoyancy.
• Control your fins; keep them away from the reefs and avoid kicking sand onto the corals.
• Do not pick up organic objects (dead or alive) from the sea. Likewise, please do not buy shells or other decorative products made from sea animals.
• Do not stand or rest on the stone-like corals. After all, they are living animals.
