This is a patch reef situated between Agincourt No 2 & 3 in an area of strong tidal movement, it offers both drift and static dives.

The drift dives are along the northern edge with depths to 20m, the coral community due to the high tidal movement is exceptionally good with large areas of plate and branching coral.

Near the mooring you will find several large clams. Subject to tidal movement large numbers of Red Bass, Goldman’s Sweetlips and Bigeye Trevally can be seen on either side of the reef, in the shallow water over the reef top Humphead Parrotfish can be seen individually or in groups of up to thirty.

>On the sandy bottom there are areas of Garden Eel’s and on occasions Green Turtles and Yellow Tailed Fusiliers accompany you on your dive.
