Gorgone I One Dive Site

Gorgone I One Dive Sites is an excellent shallow dive in an area covered in coral. There are 3 pinnacles, each with its own ecosystem. The central pinnacle boasts a busy cleaning station. Down the coral slope, there is a large Gorgonian fan coral the site is named after, and to the north you will find a series of table corals, and you can also enjoy the Hawksbill Turtles that frequent the area. Around the northern pinnacle are a shoal of Big Eye Emperors and a large shoal of sergeant Major Fish. Here a deep gully full of Fusiliers drops off towards the Japanese Garden. The mooring is to the south in a sandy patch at 15m. The North West of the fan coral is currently under survey using a down line of the marine park boundary buoy in 24m.
