Certification Level AOW
Entry Type Shore/Boat
Points of Interest Artificial Reef
Description Two different areas to explore here, the shallow reef that has some nice little coral formations where lots of little reef fish hide among. Also has some of the more exotic species here including frogfish, Ghost pipefish, various Eels and lots of cool crustaceans. The shallow seagrass beds also have the occasional turtle feeding amongst it. This site does experience some occasional strong currents, so can be done as a drift dive as well.
The deeper Muck diving site has all sorts of various artificial structures scattered along the sandy area (hence the name Sahara). This site has some very cool muck diving critters. Various Cephalapods including Flamboyant cuttlefish are common here. Frogfish, and various cool crustaceans can be found residing in the arterial reef. This is a muck diving haven, best on Nitrox, as there is lots to see and it’s deep.
