The mooring is located on the main reef and is at about 5 metres. Once you descend, drop down to the sand, do not go down the mooring. There is no need to go deeper than about 25 metres on this dive as there appears to be nothing but sand past this.

This is not a bad site. The visibility was about 25 metres and the water temperature about 26° in October.
