Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Castle Rock

This site usually has excellent visibility but is prone to strong currents. The current usually flows eastwards and is much stronger at the surface than in the deeper water. However, the top of the rock, which is approximately 3 to 4m deep, also offers shelter from the current; hence the name "Castle Rock". Recommended dive entry point is in blue water approximately 50m up-current from the shallowest point of the reef. Schooling barracuda, curious batfish as well as trevally and mackerels swim at 30-40m depth. At approximately 20m depth there is excellent soft coral growth and numerous seafans that host pygmy seahorses. The top of the rock is a good, calm place to explore during safety stops.

Incredible shark dive! Latch on with reef hook and be surrounded by white tip, black tip, and grey reef sharks. Gorgeous coral, tons of schooling fish.
