This divesite is located south of 5 Mile reef. It is flat with a 2m ledge along its northern upcurrent edge. The ledge is approximately 100m long. The maximum depth is 30m and the average depth 27m. An overhang with black coral hides two longnose hawkfish. Hundreds of blue-and-gold fusiliers as well as yellowback fusiliers take advantage of the upwelling of the water along the ledge. Large pelagic fish hang a few metres above the reef. Zambezi and tiger sharks are seen here regularly. Numerous whip corals are home to well camouflaged shrimps. It is not one of the best known dive sites and you will often see fisherman catching game fish.

Hotspot was discovered by spear fishermen looking for game fish which lurk in the deep waters, it consists of a ledge which provides a great patrol area for big game fish in search of prey. Various crustaceans can be found along the bottom. See what is using the Black Tree coral as shelter. Lionfish are sometimes spotted on the small pinnacle just off the ledge. Sharks, Potato bass, and various Rays (e.g. Eagle rays, Manta rays) may accompany you on your dive.
