A boat dive at the base the base of the rugged, sheer cliffs just before Rooi Els.

What to look out for:

Huge boulders and rock walls covered with kelp, enormous orange wall sponges, black stink sponges and crumb of bread sponges. 

Here we find many different types of nudibranchs – the blue and orange gas flame nudibranchs, black nudibranchs and frilled nudibranchs, ghost nudibranchs and coral nudis to name but a few.

The reefs are teeming with elegant feather stars and toothed feather hydroids. Fish life is plentiful and we are often joined by inquisitive playful seals and a resident short tail stingray at this site.
