Parker Point Dropoff is better as an early morning dive before our famous howling sea breeze makes its usual definite summer's day appearance. The drop-off itself is pretty cool, like flying out over a cliff the top of which sits at about 4-5mtrs then plummets down to about a 10 meter or so drop. For those that have never done a "bottomless" wall dive in the tropics, this is the next best thing, especially if the visibility is good. Follow the drop-off with your echo sounder and anchor at the eastern end (about the GPS points given), jump in and go straight down the face and swim west, you will pass a few great overhangs that can be looked at on your way back to the boat as they are about midway up the wall. Where the cliff top starts to slope deeper go a little further on and you can find some nice finger sponges then turn around and head slowly up the face and back to your boat.
