These three dive sites tend to be done together, usually as a drift dive as you get reef, wreck and sand all in one!

We started with Asta Reef where you’ll spot loads of reef like including snappers, barracudas, angel fish & stingrays.

We then moved onto Friars Craig, which is a 100+ft Dutch freighter that was sunk in 1984/5. It has now broken into 3 parts but lies at around 17m

We then headed over some sand to Lobster Reef – another incredible reef with the odd sighting of a stingray!

The most memorable thing on this dive for me was a massssssive turtle having a rest, the jelly fish near the surface that freaked me out until the dive guide showed me they were harmless and plenty of squid. We jumped off the boat to begin with, then held onto a tow rope until all divers were in the water. I think this was due to some pretty strong currents.

A memorable dive even all these years later!
