The House reef

The House reef

At the house reef

The house reef with direct entry from our dive center is very rich in fish and is very close to the island, it was like so many other reefs also affected by the coral bleaching.
Since 2016 they started a project on the house reef a coral farming station with very good success. We are taking very well care of the same and the coral growth is very fast and very nice to see. It is a nice reef for some dives and especially for night dives very well suited. White- and black tip sharks, as well as stingrays, eagle rays and very much schools of fishes complete the whole picture of our housereef. It is also very good for snorkeling as it is very close to the island.

With our new Seabob a very nice dive where you can dive the island from the diving center to the other side of the island. Bottles and scooter service organize our staff.
