For large marine life there is no more famous spot. Whale sharks, hammerheads and dolphins are regulars around Darwin and Wolf Islands, Darwin being slightly more out of the way. The reef here houses a lot of smaller fish as well so there is colour as well as the size to photograph (this is a major site for underwater photographers.). Tuna and eagle rays come in in schools. You need to be an experienced diver, this is a remote, ocean site with unpredictable and strong currents, but you don’t need to dive much below 100 feet, the sandy bottom is around 115feet.
