Outer Point Lonsdale Reef is a large area of shallow reef that lies off the extreme South East tip of the Outer Lonsdale Reef. It is a very exposed site, but offers the diver with limited experience a wide variety of reef habitats that are not usually experienced in such shallow water.
It is dominated by a huge over-hang that runs along its southern side, and is full of a wide variety of fish and invertebrate species, that offers much for the inquisitive diver. Many pelagic fish species often hang around this drop-off whilst the ebb is running, so be prepared for what can be an exhilarating dive experience.
It is a very exposed site, so make sure you anchor just to the south of the shallow section of the reef, in approximately 7 metres of water.
It is an ebb tide dive, so under no circumstances are you to dive when it is a flood tide, as not only are the currents very strong, but the swell can increase with very little warning.
