Neil Island


This reef, located between Havelock and Neil, starts out at around 22m and extends out like a finger, dropping down to about 30m. At the tip of the finger, there is a big school of lionfish living around some soft coral. Towards the shallower part of the reef, we regularly see some blue-spotted stingrays, different kinds of sea stars and some very large napoleon wrasses. Divers are reminded to look up and into the blue for pelagics – reef sharks are fairly common on the site, and occasionally, we have even seen marlin. A fairly large school of trevally’s and barracudas too live here. Due to depth and moderate to strong currents, this site is for intermediate to advanced dive₹


A large volcanic rock spread out over a sandy bottom with a mix of varying depths make this a great dive site for all levels of dive₹ Perfect for underwater navigation courses as this site rarely has any current and there are plenty of crevices, small overhangs, small boulder formations to explore. This rock is home to many different types of snappers, sweetlips, soldierfish and butterfly fish, different from what we see in the dive sites of Havelock.

Margherita’s Mischief

A large, sandy bottom, covered in a maze of boulders making it easy for one to get lost! Margherita’s Mischief is an ideal dive site for open water divers because of its easy depths and clear wate₹ Occasionally having some current, this dive site is often frequented by dugongs, so carrying a camera is recommended. Each of the boulder patches is home to hundreds of yellow snappers and soldierfish. Moving along these little rocky formations provides a chance to see pufferfish , angelfish, batfish, and dozens of blue spotted stingrays hidden in the sand. This gem of a divesite is located only 10 mins away from the jetty.

Jetty Channel Marker

A great little reef around the jetty channel marker, suitable for all diver levels, including Open Water students. The top is 7m and drops down to a sandy bottom about 11m on its sides. There is a concrete pillar fallen on its side underwater here. Schools of trevally swim between the marker pillars, and the site has lots of angelfish, stingrays in the sand, parrotfish, small puffers, triggerfish, juvenile batfish and scorpionfish as well.
