Silver City Dive Site
Silver City is a great dive site where divers can explore a network of caves, a maze of bommies and a sheer wall of coral. Located on the western side of Osprey Reef, Silver City is often a good place to encounter silvertip sharks, but far more common are the whitetip reef sharks and grey reef sharks.
In depths from 10 metres to 30 metres divers can venture into caves lined with gorgonians, whip corals and soft corals. While around the bommies are gropers, coral trout, Maori wrasse, trevally and a great assortment of reef fish. After exploring the caves and bommies divers can venture to the edge of the drop off and watch a passing parade of pelagic wanderers, which can include mackerel, tuna, mobula rays and maybe the odd marlin.
