The Outpost/ Jackie’s Reef/Jimmis reef/ Fannys reef/Side street
For 35 years the resort has been fish feeding here from coral viewing boats and this has bought about a fish population of great diversity and abundance. Both large and small reef fish, both solo and in huge schools, allow a rare opportunity to see all these fish at one shallow, easy and close dive site.
B26 Bomber Dive SiteB26 Bomber
This American Bomber aero plane crash landed only 1 1/2 kilometers from Beachcomber Island in 26 meters of water. Although the aero plane is well broken up and strewn across the bottom of the ocean, most parts are still all there. We have connected them by a rope so they are easy to find. Entire wing sections, both engines, tail section, electronics, ammunition, the undercarriage, and in fact, the entire aircraft is on the seabed. Although there are no skeletons to be seen, we understand that all the crew were killed on impact.
An easy dive in 18 meters of water or less on a series of pinnacles close to Beachcomber Island. Often used for night diving where divers frequently observe Crayfish, Clams, Moray Eels and a multitude of other tropical marine life.
Just 10 kilometres away from the resorts is possibly the world’s most famous shark encounter. Grey reef sharks, White tip reef sharks and black tip reef sharks keep the adrenaline pumping! This is one of our most exciting dives – you can guess where the staff dive on their days off!
The Salamanda is a decommissioned, 40 metre cruise ship that we sank in 30 metres of water. Diving on a shipwreck is always an exciting dive. The vessel is now covered in soft corals and anemones. Shrimps and crabs in some of these anemones have produced a number of prize winning photographs.
Vomo Island Dive Site
We have two separate dive sites here; Ronnies Reef (named after a famous New Zealand diver) never fails to please even the most discerning of scuba divers. Dramatic canyons and gullies along with great fish life, unusual and spectacular coral formations will be found here. The other site, known as Vomo Caves, consists of caverns and swim-throughs with shafting light breaking through crevices in the reef above makes this dive a very memorable experience.
Bird Rock Dive Site Bird Rock
A dramatic sheer wall plunging in excess of 40 metres. This site is known for its swim-throughs and caves, soft corals and plentiful fish action.
