Banana Bommie, Milne Bay

This patch reef is just small enough to swim around on a single tank, but it is best to dive only whichever side is receiving the current – usually the west. Reasonable shelter from the current is possible once you are over the front face. The reef is incredibly rich, and the sheer numbers of fish and other marine life are staggering. The reef-side slopes down to a sandy bottom at about 27m (90 ft) with rich coral outcrops. Garden eels live in the sand. A huge school of very friendly Batfish is often seen, as are Grey Reef Sharks, colourful Red-lined Sea Cucumbers, nudibranchs and myriads of reef fish. This is a wonderful site for wideangle photography in clear conditions.
