Is a small patch reef to the west of Agincourt Reef No 3, this reef can only be visited in the right conditions as it is weather prone. It is one of the Dive Instructors favorite dive sites, it needs good navigational skill by the dive tender master to find, but on calm days it is easy to see well before you get there by the large number of fish swimming close to the surface, the reason for the large numbers of fish is its isolation from other reefs.

The visibility at this site is normally 12 to 30m with an average of 18 to 20m, when diving from your deepest point looking up the edge of the reef on the currant side you will see large schools of Fusiliers, Drummers, Sweetlip and on the reef walls Trout, Moorish Idols and numerous Clown Fish. On the reef top there are large plate corals which can provide shelter for sleeping Green Turtles.
