I am not a diver but I really enjoyed a scuba trip to this wreck, which is really quite large. Organised by Kim at North Point. Please find that review elsewhere.

it was an activity to do. most of the corals are dead unfortunatly. we went out to the so called coral garden. sorry but cannot recommend it.. snorkeling is nice nevertheless.. but if you want to see a real coral ref this isnt it!

Had a night dive here recently with Thresher Shark Divers. Amazingly there is a lot of marine life to see. Lots of crabs, cuttlefish. Good visibility. Recommended
