|Agincourt Reef 2 - Site 13|
|Maximum Depth 22 metres|
|Novice to Intermediate|
|12 - 30 metres, average 20m|
|Fantastic pinnacle, schools of Barracuda|
A deep water pinnacle situated close to the mid point of the sheltered side of this small ribbon reef is one of our most popular sites. Visibility is almost always fantastic since you are literally visiting the very edge of the GBR, next stop Fiji!
For the divers the pinnacle holds not only the obvious school of Barracuda but also Dog Tooth Tuna and some fair size Grey reef Sharks. The pinnacle is a macro Photographers delight.
Here a huge diversity of some the reefs most colourful animals, the Nudibranch, are to be found by those with a keen eye. Feather starfish almost carpet the Pinnacles top.
Look closely at these and you might find the tiny Squat Lobster that lives within the Feather Starfishes waving arms. Christmas Tree worms, tiny colourful Sponges, Hawk fish and Coral shrimps will keep the photographer busy.
The reef edge itself creates a wonderful experience for novice divers and snorkelers. Huge ancient Boulder corals of Green, Blue and Yellow shelter bays with pretty coral gardens only a short swim from the pinnacle itself.
Here, if you look carefully, you will find all of the colourful coral fish species you could think to name, and probably many that you couldn’t.Next Sonic Site
