Stringer Reef:

  • Average Depth 9-12m  Maximum Depth 14m
  • Dive Plan:

Start on little stringer and go around it once. Spend approximately half your planned dive time here because, the fish life is the most interesting on this part of the reef. The crossover point from little to big Stringer is on the southern side of the reef. There is two flat rocks at the crossover point going in the direction of big stringer (direction +/- south). Big Stringer is a 10-15m relaxed fin from little Stringer. Go around the inshore (western) side of the reef for this side has the a better variety of fish life. The reef goes flatter to the end and when you start going on to the flat end it is time to turn around or end the dive. This is an easy 60 minute dive.

Stringer Reef

  • Best to dive when:

The best time to dive Stringer is when there is no surge, no current (slight north south current exceptable) and clear visibility. Because the reef is small and surrounded by sand, the visibility gets bad very quickly when there is a surge.

  • Where to look:

Stay on the side of the reef and look into all the different holes and especially on the sand. On the sand is where you will see your rays and sand sharks. Keep an eye on the sand away from the reef to spot game fish when they pass by.
