Dive Site: The Blocks

Description: Reef dive

Depth: 18 metres (59 feet)

Visibility: 10 - 15 metres (30 - 50 feet)

Rating: ****

This is an artificial reef of 1 metre square blocks with circular holes in them, about 20 in a group that are full of BIG bream, trigger fish and much more. They grow big as they can hide in these blocks away from fisherman.
