Featuring a large sandy plateau with depths from three to eight meters and barely there currents, our house reef provides the perfect environment to conduct course, experience and pleasure dives for divers of all levels. It's the ideal spot for our qualified divers who haven't dived in a while to ease themselves gently back into the water in preperation for reef dives further afield.

With a gentle stroll down the jetty where they find their equipment set up for them, our guests find themselves submerged into another world of coral heads, small walls and caves making this one of the best house reef dives in the area.

On the outer edge of the plateau the sea bed rapidly drops away to hundreds of meters. In the summer in particular, it's always worth keeping an eye in the blue for the "big stuff" passing by such as manta rays, eagle rays even whale sharks if you're lucky.
