The Gravel Loader with its vast pylons creates an excellent muck diving site and habitat for juvenile fish.

The Gravel Loader has a couple of easy entry points from either the east or western side. The eastern side access is from the old boat ramp is a bit more of a navigational exercise to be able to access the dive site itself. The western access, although a longer walk, is an easier navigational exercise with the entry point being where the shore line and the break wall meets on the corner.
The pylons of the gravel loader offer a wealth of life from the standard type of macro species thru to wide angle stuff –bright colorful nudies and crustaceans to the larger cuttlefish; schooling groups of old wives. And not to omit the nursery area which at the correct time of the year is teeming with juvenile and adult species of tropical fish –banner fish, Moorish idols and the shy and retiring golden headed sleeper gobies, this year we even had the return of the ragged fin lion fish. The maximum depth of the Gravel Loader is 11-12 meters which allows for longer bottom times and is a great site for a second dive of the day and is also a great site for underwater photography.
