Dangerous Reef is a medium size, diamond shape reef. The average depth here is 6-25m/20-80ft with water visibility of 20m/65ft. The hard coral wall at this site drops down to around 22m/72ft where there is a gently sloping sandy seafloor with small coral heads. On the most southern part of the reef in around 8m/26ft of water there are a number of fissures and breaks in the reef allowing a diver to enter a small cave or a tunnel area with a sandy floor. Divers can also explore some lovely coral gardens, where large stony corals cascade down the reef and provide a shelter to a variety of marine creatures.
