Jubilee Shoals

A spectacular offshore reef with plenty of double dive options. Only a short 10 minute boat ride from Avdimou beach, this reef has something for everyone.

The landward side forms a sea grass slope with all manner of small rock formations and a healthy ecosystem with large overhanging pinnacles and a perfect platform to observe abundant marine life. The seaward side is a sheer cliff face with a complex cave system with several large caverns worn into the underwater cliff face to explore with the most popular being a huge 60 meter long tunnel starting at 38 meters. Much of the cliff face is covered in old discarded trawler nets that have snagged and been abandoned. This creates a mystical atmosphere and adds to the dive experience.  Amidst the reef lies the wing (45m) and part of the fuselage (55m) of a Canberra B2 military aircraft that crashed in 1970. There is an abundance of fish due to the protective nature of the sheer reef. You’ll see shoals of amberjack, a few large resident moray eels, grouper, crayfish, damsel fish, coloured wrasse and many more species. This reef also truly comes to life at night! During the surface interval, egg & chips is a favourite at the beach tavern.

Depth 16 – 55m
