A unique dive site with two wrecks on one dive site. Skipjack 1 and 2 have been lying in this channel since the early 1980’s and are now encrusted with colourful hard and soft corals. Small blennies nest in the ends of broken pipes, emperor angelfish, anthias, damsels and butterfly fish are found all around the wrecks. Thousands of glassfish and some well-camouflaged scorpion fish can also be seen. There are sometimes stingrays sleeping under the wreck. Don't forget to look up and see the stunning silhouette of the winch arm with the sunlight streaming behind it.
