Usually done as a sunset or night dive, this reef offers an easy drift with plenty of life. The Staghorn Corals and hard coral heads here slope gently down to a sandy bottom at an average of around 20m. Contrary to the name, turtles are rarely seen here though on an evening you will often see hunting Lion Fish and Mangrove Snapper. Many of the Gorgonian Sea Fans are rimmed with Feather Stars of all colours, while the reef will be sheltering large amounts of Parrot Fish. In the shallower areas you are likely to see large numbers of Magnificent Sea Anemones, mostly with families of Clarke's, Skunk or Western Clown Fish in them.
