Marine Life Octopus Octopus Octopus
Also known as Octopus Alley this site goes off during December/January when the Cephalpods are breeding. It is common to see Motiti Octopus, Coconut Octopus, Mimic Octopus, Wonderpus, Blue Ring Octopus and Flamboyant Cuttlefish on the same dive during mating season. The site is just sand, nothing but sand, but some amazing critters can be spotted here all year round. The typical array of critters like Ghost Pipefish, nudibranchs, Ambon Scorpionfish, and frogfish can be hiding among the loose algae on the gently sloping sandy wall. Tides can be very harsh here on the wrong tide.
