A popular site for manta spotting, arguably the twin of nearby Manta Ray Madness. Most commonly this is a night dive using lights to attract plankton upon which the mantas come to feed.

This site has large numbers of garden eels rising out of the sand like grasses. They will pull back into the sand as you approach, making them difficult to photograph in detail, but also quite mesmerising.

You can also see tritons, blue striped butterfly fish and even dolphins have been reported here.
