First Bay South Dive Site

Once you get into the First Bay South dive site, you will find the cabbage-looking coral at the depth of 18m on the corner of the reef.

Follow the wall back to the north, and then follow the counter of the reef, you will pass over wide expanse of coral bushes and arrive to sandy gully. Follow this back up to 12m and work your way back across the reefs to the mooring. In this area, you will find lots of cornet fish changing in waves of color as you watch them hunt the smaller fish. Watch out here for the eight-lined wrasse. You can also find lots of Parrotfish. This dive is a nice colorful dive with a lot to see for those who want it.
