fantastic housreef - an overwhelming sum of species can be found there, including crocodile fish and ghostpipefish! Good idea to make the dive with your buddy and not with an organized diving group - this will give you the ability to SEE the incredible amount of life. Done the Islands about 15 times and still news to be found...

Dive info - Entry to this dive site is just to the north of the Hilton Beach and is made by walking across the reef top lagoon and then either dropping in over the top of the reef, or entering through one of the holes in the reef and swimming through. There are some lovely coral formations in and amongst the pinnacles. Look for blue spotted rays hiding under the coral whilst you are weaving through the pinnacles. It is also common to see shoals of blackfin barracuda and even the odd lone great barracuda. This is a very scenic site and ideal for a long second or third dive of the day - perfect for photographs. Diving this site can be confusing as there are so many different routes to take, however due to the relatively shallow depths if you become disoriented it is best simply to surface and locate the main exit point, then drop back down to safety stop level and continue the dive back to shore.
The Islands had very interesting rock formations, with natural rifts. There are some huge brain corals here, and fish included puffers and napoleon wrasse.
