12lb Reef

12lb Reef

Open Water
12lb Reef is located on the Lonsdale Wall. It’s name has a similar history to that of 16lb reef – namely that it was home to a massive crayfish. The difference, however, is that this one was caught. The story goes along the following lines: a cray diver caught site of the monster in its cave, and grabbed it. In fact, it’s more accurate to say that the cray caught him: by the time he reached the surface the two were still locked in a mortal struggle! Nevertheless, there could well be more still lurking here, so if you fancy your skills as a cray basher it is definitely worth a look. The many overhangs and plentiful soft corals make this a popular and picturesque open water training dive as well.
