Poseidon reef (Dolphin House) is a horseshoe-shaped reef with a very nice and shallow turquoise lagoon. It is famous for its population of very friendly dolphins. Dives are often done near the pinnacles in the south-west, which are shallow and easily navigated. For a nice drift dive it is better to go to the outer reef, where a nice wall descends gradually to 20m/65ft from where it disappears.
