Stringer

Depth 10-13m

Stringer is situated just beyond the backline and is generally best dived in flat conditions and when there is not too much current. It is like an oasis in the desert – 2 rocky outcroppings surrounded by sand. Gamefish are frequent vistors and Stringer is also a nursery area for juvenile fish. It is home to myriad creatures – including paperfish, frogfish, harlquin shrimp, an abundance of rays, potato bass, moray eels, juvenile emperor angelfish, mulitple cleaning stations and much more. Be warned - the camera loving potato bass will hardly let you get a shot of anything else!
