Quarter mile reef is a small reef located about 400m north east of Jesser point. It is a reef full of cracks and small overhangs.  It is surrounded by sand on which rays can be seen. This reef is quite shallow, 7m-11m but it has a lot of fish life and a lot of different varieties of fish on it. This is due to there being no fishing and little diving on this reef, they grow to a relatively big size with boxfish reaching 40cm 50 cm.  In the summer months a few ragged tooth sharks always come to gestate and groups of 40 sharks have been reported although due to diver impact this has been reduced to about 8 sharks a year. Current measures for ensuring that the sharks stay are that no one may dive here without a Kwa-Zulu Natal Conservation Service accredited DM.

Beware of Corals because they break very easily and they take extremely long to grow back. Please preserve our Oceans for future generations to share in its splendour.
