The northern coast of Rocky Island provides good diving but it is not suitable for novices. The average depth is 25m/80ft and water visibility 20m/65ft. Rocky’s north coast is a fantastic dive, with sheer vertical walls and rugged, jagged profile. Strong currents can make diving a drift dive. The reef composition here is generally stony, with fairly good coral cover. The marine life is rich and varied.
