This is one of our favourite macro critter diving sites; especially for NIGHT Divers. Cruising across the sloping seagrass and soft coral beds we come to the pipe, which lies in between several coral & sponge encrusted mooring blocks. Here we are more likely to encounter the White’s seahorses, Ornate ghost pipefish and of course many nudibranchs. Polycera capensis or “The Punk” as they’re commonly named, is a favourite for most photographers due to their contrasting black & white striped mantle, which is complimented by their bright yellow appendages. The Pipeline is also a haven for numerous cephalopods, with regular sightings of cuttlefish, blue-lined octopus & the inconspicuous Pyjama squid.
