Sea Gypsy Village Artificial Reef


Dive Briefing
A 60 meter swim from our beach this little reef is a testament to how simple and cheap it can be to help our marine ecology.

We started in '96 when we renewed our water towers. We used old fishing nets and natural fiber to tie coconuts onto the old towers. We sank them just off shore and marked them with a buoy.  Subsequently whenever we have anything of interest we tie them down in the same way.  For the next year our diving instructor took the food waste from the kitchen and fed the growing fish life.  The reef is now self sustaining, although it takes quite a bashing every December & January during north east monsoon, and a source of great pride. It's great for Bubble Makers, Discover Scuba, Refresher Dives or even a night dive. The depth depends on the tide but maximum is 6 metres.
