Nose Reef and Whaleshark Reef (Easy)
West

Nose Reef and Whaleshark Reef are located on the south drop-off of the Grand Savanne flats. Both sites are inspiring reefs starting at about 55 ft and cascading down to 130+ ft. The arrow crabs, banded and Pederson cleaner shrimp, together with spotted flamingo tongue snails provide a macro photographer with the perfect opportunity for exceptional and striking compositions. Whaleshark offers a nice vertical face with giant barrel sponges, brilliant yellow tube sponges, stunning azure vases and colorful hard corals teeming with tropical fish. These spots are the outermost sites in the area and offer the greatest opportunity for seeing larger fish such as barracudas, Spanish mackerel and jacks.
