A favourite amongst dive instructors

A stunning garden reef scattered around the pinnacles and patch reefs of Agincourt 4. A favourite amongst Dive Instructors and a site regularly visited by juvenile Grey Reef Whalers and occasionally Manta Rays.

This patch reef is situate amongst patch and pinnacles laying to the west of Agincourt Reef No 4, the maximum depth is around 16m. The reef is split in two by a narrow gap which is currant prone; this area is visited by juvenile Grey Reef Whaler sharks at times in large numbers

Divers have two options here for diving, the first is to dive the coral gardens on the northern side of the reef protected from the prevailing south easterly winds where you will find colorful branching stag horn and plate corals, rainbow colored reef fish of small and medium size and in the current zones mackerel and large numbers of Fusiliers.

The second dive is to circumnavigate the patch reef which can be completed in forty to fifty minutes comfortably allowing plenty of time for the underwater photographer to take many photographs of the coral gardens, reef fish and hopefully of Grey Reef Whaler sharks.
