- Santos Wreck – The “Santos” was wrecked in 1874. The ship was carrying furs & timber when it ran aground during a gale force south easterly wind. The wreck is mostly covered with sand. However, the mast, anchor and chain are still visible.
- Mitch’s Reef – This reef is 8m deep. A short fun boat ride will enable you to discover the deeper side of the reef without running low on air! Orange sponges up to 3m in length, banks of sea grass and large red romans can be found.
