The Reef slopes at about a 60 degree angle down to a sandy bottom. The slope is more severe in several places and it is here that the undercut caves are usually found. The reef is only about 60 metres long and consequently, can be difficult to find.
At each end it breaks into rubble and sand, leveling at 20 metres in the east and 30 metres at the western end.
The area must be dived at slack water as the currents race through much too quickly to hang on to the reef. Ramsden Reef is in the shipping lanes and diving may only be conducted when no shipping is expected.
