Cod Hole

Updated: 15-Feb-2007

The Cod Hole is an Internationally Famous Dive destination offering very exciting year round diving.

Located at the top of the Ribbon Reefs 200km north of Cairns, the Cod Hole is renowned for its huge, but friendly, Potato Cod (Groper).

These diver friendly fish will amaze you with their sheer size and seeming eagerness to pose for camera.

They are inquisitive by nature and very popular with divers.
 
The reef here is composed of a lot of small coral outcrops with some nice gorgonias. The wall slopes up fairly gently to the main reef top.

Look out for sharks, barracudas and pelagics.

The Cod Hole is a fantastic dive site, one of the best you will do anywhere in the World. Visibility is generally in excess of 40 metres and water temperature ranging from 24 to 29 degrees.
