28. Verde Island Dropoff

 Maximum depth: 42m   Skill level: Advanced & above

A great day out! A rocky pinnacle 400m off Verde island is the start of this dive site. Steep sloping reefs and coral encrusted walls are the homes for nudibranches, scorpion fish, banded sea snakes and a multitude of reef fish.

At the corner of the wall, there is a great chance of seeing schools of Jacks, Trevallies and Batfish. Around the corner volcanic bubbles escape through the corals.

This dive site is for advanced divers only as the currents can be very strong. Its also very much dependant on the weather conditions. Ideally only done when the sea is reasonably flat. Max Depth 40m (but does go a lot deeper).
