Seamoth found on Hard Rock Reef


Situated only 850m from shore it is a short boat ride. This reef starts with two sandy patches hidden between a wall on the one side. As you accent to about 15m you get to the top of the wall and then pass along a table like surface gradually descending to a depth of 18m. Keep your eyes open for the most spectacular and interesting creatures you have ever seen! Shrimps come out their hiding places and stare at you as if to say ‘what are you doing here!’ As you get to the wall, you drop off at the other side of the reef and start heading into a southerly direction. On the one side is a wall and the other side is the open blue water of the ocean disappearing into the deep. Focusing on the wall you will find lots of interesting marine life such as Juvenile Scorpion Fish and Devil Fire Fish hiding among the small little caves, all are very well camouflaged. You will also find various kinds of Nudibranch, Giant Anglerfish, Emperor Shrimps, Banded Shrimp and Crockdilefish on boulders scattered on the ocean floor. Don’t be surprise if a Bowmouth Guitarshark passes you by, also seem here is cuttlefish and flying Garnets. Lying soundly on the sand floor you may spot a Gryspotted Guitar Shark and Blue Spotted Stingrays. The reefs main attraction is the cleaning shrimps found at the end of the dive. Here the DM’s will give you a chance to sit down on the ocean floor and to let these little cleaning machines do their work. You can have first HAND experience of Natures true manicurists.
