The strong current around the reef has earned its nickname “Paindane Express”. Many dive spots haven't been named yet. The inner side of the reef is extremely well protected and provides almost pool like conditions for student training and snorkeling. The reef starts close to shore in about 18m of water and runs rapidly down to 35m. Excellent sightings of reef fish on one side with game fish lurking on the other. Many lionfish can be seen in one spot. Brilliantly coloured corals, Gorgonian sea fans, fast moving game fish and occasional sighting of reef sharks make for a particularly interesting dive.
