On Hook Island's north side this bay is well protected from those blustery southerlies, making it a great calm spot to dive with great visabilty. The variety of coral is the first thing you will notice, of which you'll be garaunteed to see the giant plate corals and feel dwarfed by the size of the honeycombe corals towering over the reef. If taking a leisurely cruise through the canyons isn't enough to inspire a sense of awe. You may even get a chance to visit the affectionately named "City of Nemo's."
Also in the bay is 'turtle alley', a little piece of heaven with amazing variety and coverage of coral and quite a few turtles wondering around. Next to the impressive wall you can find spotted rays and an occassional shovelnose ray laying in the sand.
The small island of Langford is surronded by reef. Enterring the from the sandbar or straight from the boat the 15 metre depth is a maze of small coral bommies and a home to many small in size, but large in numbers, school of fish. There is nearly always a current flowing past the reef, which makes for some great drift diving.
BLUE PEARL BAY
A very popular site for snorkelling and diving alike. Its a great place to visit for viewing coral and swimming with big fish. This bay is home to Priscilla, a giant Hump Headed Maori Wrasse, over the years many of our instructors and crew have witnessed the progression in her school and her growth. After swimming with Priscilla on the 'dancefloor' you can be guided through a maze of large bommies, swimthroughs, canyons and caves. With the corals stretching from the shallows at 3 metres to a depth of 18 metres on a silt/sand bottom and visabilty producing a 15 metre view this is one of the best places for diving in the Whitsundays.
