This dive site is named after the submerged mountain of coral that starts at 10m and slopes all the way down to 30+ metres. It is possible to see schooling batfish, anthias, moorish idols and unicornfish. If you are lucky you will get to see the resident giant grouper 'Submarine' and his trailing pilotfish. Whip corals adorn the eastern slope, growing up to 4m in length. Fields of daisy coral coat the southern side, joined by montipora to create a beautiful wall that towers above the diver.
