The Horsehead Reef covers a very large area with an average depth of about 35m/115ft. The site takes its name from one of the rock formations that resemble a horse's head, but there are other numerous rock formations that make the topography of the site really interesting. Soft tree corals dominate the substrate, along with areas of large whip corals and big gorgonian fans. During strong flood tides shoals of tuna, shoals of jacks and king jacks are regularly seen, making this a great drift dive. Hammerheads and thresher sharks have also been sighted. At the end of the reef is a wall that drops down to 55m/180ft, making this a good site for technical divers. The current here can be very strong, so it is a site recommended only for advanced divers.
