Coral Gardens Dive Site, Flynn Reef

Located out in the open ocean this Site has consistently amazing visibility. It's always over 30 metres, and often better than that. The open ocean isolation also draws in large pelagic fish such as dogtooth tuna, mackerel and barracuda. These reefs are great places to spot sharks of all kinds, especially white tipped reef sharks. Over the past 20 years, feeding by dive operators at certain dive spots has caused the resident reef sharks, potato cod and other fish to become accustomed to divers; they are not skittish and allow close observation. Some operators offer a shark feed dive, where sharks are drawn in to a feeding station. These reefs offer a combination of diving, from dramatic wall dives to intricate coral formations, huge soft corals and reef flats.
