Site Description

This site requires an Advanced certification level. It is located about 500m directly east of Snoopy Island. The site has a bottom topography of flatbed rock and sandy patches. To attract fish, tires and rope have been laid on the sea flow.

An accident with a small diving boat left the boat unusable. The boat was towed out to the site, the boat and trailer were purposefully sunk to attract fish to the site. There is no mooring line on the site. To protect the delicate soft coral below we do not throw anchor or a shot line.

You will kit up on the boat and backward roll into the water. Your dive guide will lead you on a descent without a reference line. Once you reach the bottom at about 24m you will notice an abundance of large tree corals. You will explore the small dive boat and trailer. You can expect to spot the usual reef creatures on this site such as Box Fish, Angel Fish, Snapper and Broomtail Wrasse. Moray eels like to hide in the rocky crevices and Sea Horses perch on the ropes attached to the tires.

After about a 27 minute bottom time or if you reach 60 bar your dive guide will lead you on your ascent and send an SMB to mark your location to the boat captain. You will then hop back on the boat and prepare for your second dive or come into shore.
