Anemone Reef

Anemone reef is an large pinnacle absolutely covered in lime green and sky blue magnificent anemone’s. Located less than a mile from Shark Point, the rock formation rises up from 30 meters to 5 meters below the surface, and is a well known shipping hazard.  Because so it was this reef that the King Cruiser struck in 1997. As a result, you can still see a gap at the top of the pinnacle created by the ship’s hull.

The best way to dive this site is probably to follow the reef down to your chosen depth limit and slowly spiral your way back to 5 meters. Anemone reef  is hence a very impressive dive and here you have also good chance to see Leopard Sharks, lying in the sandy area by the reef.

Amazing underwater life!

Due to the nutrient rich waters here this dive spot is a magnet to huge numbers of reef fish seeking food and shelter. Furthermore you will see enormous shoals of tropical fish, snappers, large groupers and also colorful varieties of clown fish. In addition the site is a great place to watch out for larger game-like fish in the blue like Tuna and Barracuda. Finally, watch out for the resident Tiger Tail Seahorse, our especially relevant guest on a large Georgian fan at about 14 meters.
