This reef forms a huge amphitheatre, and as the name suggests the things you see here are quite a show. The wall around the side is 10m high, and drops down in ledges and layers. As we drop down, the visibility is usually at least 20m so the feeling of falling into the arena is quite sensational and a bit eerie! Our drop puts us on the western inside edge, and we just swim slowly around, inside, hiding from the current. There is a huge Honeycomb Moray on this reef that we have named Russell the Gladiator, and look out for Guitar Sharks on the sand. There are also Potato Bass and a colourful array of fish and it is also quite common to encounter graceful Devil rays on our ascent.
General info: Because of its size we rarely dive this site in a very strong current. And because of its depth and the need for a rapid descent we like all divers to be experienced in deep diving and negative entry procedures.
