Part of the string of long narrow Ribbon Reefs, Cod Hole is home to a group of very friendly potato cod, reaching up to 100 kilograms, that have become accustomed to divers over the past 30 years.

Many other large and small reef fish populate this site, and during the winter months you may even be photobombed by a dwarf minke whale - they have been known to linger around for encounters with snorkellers and divers for hours. Local dive operators do offer trips that aim to maximise these encounters, as well as dive some of the other outstanding sites in the area.

Positioned 20 kilometres east of Green Island off the Cairns coast, Flynn Reef is home to several dive sites - with the Coral Gardens being just one of them.

This also invites large pelagic fish such as dogtooth tuna, mackerel and barracuda, as well as a range of species of shark, especially white tip reef sharks.
