Gordon Reef

Gordon Reef is most famous for the wreck of the “Lovilla” which ran aground on the northern end of the reef in 1981. This dive can be done as either drift or a mooring dive, mooring on the southern side of the reef.

This large reef is fantastic for sealife spotting with bannerfish, parrotfish, cornetfish, and blue-spotted stingrays all swimming through the hard coral.
