Close Encounters, a long three-sided reef, of which two sides are very good for diving, while the third side of a large sandy slope exists. Two kilometers from the beach, the reef has steep slopes, resulting in a flat up top, which at its deepest point is 12 m and rises up to 3 to 4 m. The slope himself ends in a sandy ground at 25 to 30 m depth. Currents on all house reefs are low to absent, unless we get the bigger tides with shorter intervals. The corals, which cover the entire slope is a good mix of hard and soft corals. Most interesting is probably the eastern side with a lot of angles, corners and crevices, healthy sponges that much protection for the underwater life.
The dive offers typical reef and shoal fish, schools of snappers, large jacks, bat fish, sweet lips, emperor fish and lots of fusiliers, also with a little luck frog fish, crocodile fish, scraps of fish, many different kinds of nudibranchs, scorpion fish and octopus. Occasionally we also see sharks, buffalo head parrot fish and rays.
