In spite of it’s name Shark Observatory is not noted for sharks. Beneath the surface the towering cliffs continue at much the same angle to eventually fade into the deep blue. The dive really defines the term ‘blue water’. The steep wall is covered in multi colored soft corals.
In the shallow water are numerous caves which are home to sweeping glassfish and the rays of sunlight breaking through the cave roof is a fantastic site. There are some very impressive overhangs on this reef wall and huge gorgonian fan corals.
