In fact, the furthest reef west curves out nearly as far as the Oxscar, except for a couple of wide channels breaking its continuation. There are some nice overhangs and small cliff walls on the north face, all covered in a multitude of soft corals and hundreds of urchins. Many of the crevices hold resident conger and ballan wrasse and large shoals of coley and pollack swim above the long kelp fronds on the back edges of the reefs. The seabed on the north side of the most northerly of the reefs levels out at 14 metres. Here, the kelp thins out on a few low reefs, but there is not as much marine life about. Tidal flow can be very strong in both directions but, with a little care, it is quite easy to dive at any state of the tide. This is a nice, picturesque and interesting dive, providing you drop into the right place. On low spring tides, the depth to the reef top is only 3 metres at its highest point, but during a big northerly swell, the surface water breaks into a curl and the whole area should definitely be avoided. In the mid 1980s, my buddy Trevor and I were diving Mill Bus on a nice, warm summer’s day and we thought the big northerly swell which was running at the time was nothing to worry about. I was in the water on my dive in the vicinity of the reef, with Trevor boat handling; this is the way we have always dived, one in the water and one in the boat.
