The Needles comprise several large bommies with sand or rocky trenches between. The depth is generally around 12 meters but one area has a very interesting enclosed bowl of reef at only 5-6 meters. This area can be subject to swell and or current and because of this is generally home to clouds of fish both large and small. There are caves with crayfish, moray eels, turtles and several black corals in two colour forms.
Spanish dancers are seen most commonly here. Often divers pass through the Needles on their way to the MoHole, the Cray Crags and the Line of Smiles. Here the depth increases to 16 meters maximum.
