This site is located midway on the outer edge of Agincourt No 3, it is a large sandy bay varying in depth from 22m to 12m, the southern side of the bay has imposing pinnacles and colourful coral gardens. Some seventy years ago a Taiwanese fishing boat ran aground in the bay and was wrecked, the engine block, gen set, cooling pipes, plate and a large fluted ship anchor remain.

Divers at this site can do drift dives with an incoming tide from the outer edge of the reef into the bay or static dives from two different moorings. The visibility at this site is generally good from 15m to 20m with the incoming tide.

The coral community consists of colourful branching, shrub and plate corals and large boulder corals and sandy areas. The fish life is numerous from large number of Sweetlip, Fusiliers,Clown Fish and Anemone fish. Also seen on numerous occasions are Green Turtles and the occasional Grey Reef Whaler Sharks. On most dives divers will see a large White Tip Reef Shark known to the Quicksilver dive crew as Smiley.
