More about Shore Entry – House Reefs

There are a variety of shallow house reefs which are only a short swim from the shore directly in front of the dive centre, alive with marine life – a photographer’s paradise.


Redbait Reef: Depth: 6–9m

Redbait Reef is Plettenberg Bay’s house reef, is a delightful introduction to the area and conditions. Juvenile reef fish, cuttlefish and shysharks are regularly spotted amongst the colourful anemones, urchins and sponges. Easily accessible from the shore this site offers lots of natural light for photography and is suitable for beginners.

Shallow Blinders: Depth: 10–13m

A short swim from the shore in Plettenberg Bay lies a trio of pinnacles that is a photographer’s paradise! This large reef is home to many fish species and is a nursery in the summer months. Summer also brings the ragged-tooth sharks to this reef; however pajama sharks, leopard sharks and puffadder shy sharks are spotted all year round. Sightings of rays, cuttlefish and boxfish on the swim out are common and nudibranchs, octopus, sea spiders and scorpion fish inhabit the reef itself, making it ideal for macro photography.

The Wall: Depth: 10–13m

As part of the Blinders reef, The Wall is worth the slightly further swim. Rising from 10m to just below the surface and covered in many species and colours of soft coral – Strawberry Anemones share space with Blue Choirboys, Orange Wall Sponge and Multi-Colour Coral, painting a dramatic underwater landscape.
