Average visibility in the area is 15 to 20 meters, with reports of up to 40 meters. Water temperature ranges between 29ºC in mid summer (Dec/Jan) to approximately 19ºC in mid winter (Jun/Jul) and diving is possible all year round, except the 1st of January. Temperatures remain warm throughout the winter and although summer is the rainy season we have no rivers to affect the visibility.

The most popular of our dive sites, 2 Mile is a large reef, measuring just short of 2 Km long and approximately 900m wide. Depths vary between 9m (Pinnacles) and 38+m (Deep Sponge). There are many dive sites scattered within the main body of 2 Mile, and they average out at about 14m-16m. Due to its size, 2 Mile has something for everyone, from massive beds of diverse corals, rocky overhangs and caves, to a massive amount of fishes and weird and wonderful invertebrates.

A deeper reef, this site is recommended for advanced divers. This reef has an astounding coral diversity, and is home to many of the smaller, shyer fish who like to live within the corals. Your average depth will be approximately 21 m, and a max of about 24m. The most popular spot on the reef is 'The Pothole' which offers the chance of the rare starry moray, a red anemone and other amazing life.

A favorite among advanced divers, 7 Mile is also a deeper reef, which boasts a pseudo wall dive experience. The top of the reef lies in approximately 15m with a distinct drop-off down to 24m on the sand. This inside edge is relatively sheltered from the open ocean and so supports a huge diversity of fish and invertebrate life. Definitely a must.

9 Mile doesn't get dived very often, and so is relatively untouched by divers. The big draw card on 9 Mile is the Green Coral Tree, a large outcrop of Green Tree Coral, which supports much fish life. The maximum depth on 9 Mile is 23m.
