Dive Site – Lagoon 360
Depth – up to 18 meters
Visibility – 10 to 20 meters

Thetford Reef is a coral bommie wonderland. Popular for sites such as 360 and East Meets West it provides good protection from variable winds. You can expect to see good macro life from cryptic shrimp to colourful Nudibranchs and illusive Pygmy Seahorses hiding amongst the Gorgonian Fan fronds.

Thetford Reef provides protected lagoonal snorkelling and diving with a myriad of Coral bommies to explore that act as protection for smaller reef species such as Bright Yellow Butterfly fish, Black and White Striped Humbug Damsel fish, and Electric Blue Damsel Fish. A good overnight location for calm anchorage and shallow night diving. Perfect for the first-time night intro diver.

Be sure to keep an eye out for playful dolphins and breaching whales while sailing out to Thetford reef.
