This dive site is reached by launching from Gordon’s Bay and following the beautiful coastline towards Rooi Els. This is one of Indigo Scuba’s local kelp forest dives and you can dive here many times without diving the same spot twice.

What to look out for: 

Kelp forests are popular with sevengill cow sharks, seals and short tail stingrays and we sometimes spot them on our dives here. Fish such as galjoen, red roman, janbruin, hottentot, fransmadam and twotone fingerfin are plentiful.

Lots of nudibranchs and dorids – fiery, scribbled, orange clubbed, inkspot and blue spotted dorids can be found here, as well as many more! If you look carefully you can spot dwarf sea hares and lots of interesting macro life. 

A beautiful site with so much to see and really worth a visit!
