Copton Point description
Copton Point basic informations
The dive starts with a deep descent to 17m along the mooring buoy rope to the sandy slope with beautiful Staghorn corals. The airplane is approximately 7m down the slope at the wall’s edge at 20m depth.
Dive site briefing
The airplane was put there as a dive attraction in 1993. The plane is completely stripped of its parts, with only the body left intact. After you visit the plane you can go or in north-east direction or south.
The slope is rocky with nice corals like table corals in the shallow, big sea fans and at 20-25m Staghorn corals. Along the wall are some string corals the Delicate sea whip (Junceela fragilis). Not difficult to find is the black and white Damselfish and with luck and the alert eyes of the Spotted Eagle Ray Fusilier (Caesio cuning), Yellow Ribbon Sweetlip (Plectorhinchus polytaenia), Emperor (Centropyge bicolor and tibicen), Pufferfish (Tetraodontidae family) and Blue Finned Triggerfish (Balistoides viridescens).
