Relatively isolated, these reefs support a huge range of biodiversity. Reef formations include beds of huge plate corals, isolated pinnacles crowned in delicate corals and anemones, walls, channels, caves, canyons and shallow coral gardens.

During the months of June and July, Divers and snorkelers may have the opportunity to interact with Dwarf Minke Whales. It is a unique and remarkable encounter.
