Turtle Cove is a vertical wall – so not sure why it’s called turtle cove – though we did see turtles toward the top of the reef at the end of the dive.
On the wall there are plenty of Gorgonian fans and sea fans generally. As well as what’s interesting to see on the wall – you’ll see plenty of reef sharks cruising around.
Also, towards the top of the reef you’ll see plenty of colourful reef fish – even specimens like these so called ‘Brown’ Butterflyfish. I think they’d used up all the interesting names.
The most intriguing critter on this dive for me was the Square spot Anthias. It’s a type of Basslet (Serranidae family). This little guy probably doesn’t realise he retails for $50-60. (Hope he never finds out!)
