Airport Reef


Discover Airport Reef!

This beautiful reef is part of Airport Bay from where it takes its name. Along the 200m stretch of reef there are a series of amazing swim through and chimneys and gullies.  These features creating perfect hiding spots for all sorts of marine life. Two large pinnacles create a maze for divers to explore, with depths ranging from 3-16m this is a great dive site for all certification levels.

Airport Reef offers a perfect environment for those that are still getting comfortable in the underwater world but also for those that want an easy dive. The two large pinnacle are great for taking photos and finding hidden marine life. On this dive you will often find Moray eel, Ornate Wrasse and small Dusky Grouper.

Begin this dive with a backwards roll or giant stride from our boat Cydive II. Descend into the beautiful blue waters right next to the first pinnacle. The twists and turns of the pinnacle create a maze like feeling for added adventure. The swim throughs at this dive site are fairly short but also wide which means if you have never tried swim throughs before there is plenty of space and light inside. After exiting the swim throughs you will have lots of time to explore the dive sites, whether that may be taking photos or looking for hermit crabs scuttling across the sand.

The deepest section of this dive is along a huge sandy patch at around 12-16m. This sandy patch offers the chance to see Pearly Razorfish, Flounders and if we’re lucky Cuttlefish! Use this area to practice your buoyancy and hovering skills.
