The drop-offs and mushroom shaped pinnacles, characteristic of this wonderful reef with its great diversity of marine life make it quiet popular among divers. Turtles and rays are often seen and shoals of brightly coloured goldies and other reef fish visit the coral often.
7 mile has been rated by many divers as one of the most beautiful reefs in the world and is frequently rated in the top 15 throughout Africa. As it is less frequently dived the fish life is spectacular. Also it is a high reef, the depth from top to bottom is significant, giving the divers a real feeling for exploring.

- This is really a great dive. If there is little to no swell then you can explore the shallower portion of the reef where there are cool caves and swim trhoughs. The fish life is amazing, we even he a huge turtle cruise around with us for a few minutes. A ver very pretty dive.
