Rapid Horn - Osprey Reef description

Rapid Horn - Osprey Reef basic informations

Situated at the Southern Tip of Osprey Reef, Rapid Horn can only be dived in the summer months when northerly winds prevail. It consists of a 1000 metre vertical wall which the diver drifts along, eventually leading to a plateau on the Southern Tip, which is home to an amazing array of dense fish schools both large and small.
