Dive entry from the jetty proceeding east south east along the reef.

Marco Vassallo

Qualified in the UK and this was my first real dive. Stunning. Easy access, nice swim out then you see the drop and it just takes your breath away. Gentle descent to see the Madonna and a nice swim through.

Craig Hennessy, Open Water Diver

West Reef

Nice easy dive, entry from the jetty and descend to 10m, cross the inlet to the west face and down over the rocky slope to 24m onto the sandy bottom and keep the west reef to the right. Two small caves, large boulders to explore and a diver's helmet at compass bearing 240, depth 30m, boulders will lead you up over the reef, change direction with main reef now on the left to get back to the inlet, the upper reef is another good area to explore. Inside the inlet pay attention to boat traffic.

Trevor Abela Fiorentino, AOWD
