Gordon reef is most famous for the wreck of the “Lovilla” which ran aground on the northern end of the reef in 1981. This dive can be done as either a drift or a mooring dive, mooring on the southern side of the reef.
The dive starts with a sandy plateau which you follow out to the drop off which begins at 20 meters. Descending down the drop off into turquoise blue water you could be lucky and see hammerheads or eagle rays which often frequent the blue waters here. The wall is abundant with big gorgonians and a multitude of reef fish. Leaving the drop off and heading back into the reef over the sandy plateau you will come across many metal drums filled with tar which are scattered on the plateau. You can either turn back on yourself to finish the dive or in good weather drift around the northern side of the reef.
