Two of East Londonís top diving sites are Mermaidís Pool, at Nahoon Reef, and Three Sisters reef, about 1 km offshore of Bonza Bay beach, up the coast towards East London from Mermaidís Pool.

You will need a boat to reach the reef from either the Gonubie River mouth, or Nahoon (local diving companies will be able to organise this for you).

Three Sisters, named for three deepwater pinnacles on the lee side of the reef, is good for all levels of diver, and for snorkelers. The reef is colourful and alive with pinnacles and ledges. You can see two of the pinnacles at low tide from Nahoon beach.

It is not a small dive site by any stretch of the imagination and, to do it justice, you need more than one dive. There are numerous caves where rag tooth sharks tend to gather. Because of the presence of the sharks, particularly during summer, some advocate that it is better to dive in winter. It depends on your capacity for sharks. Some divers love the raggies.

Visibility out at the reef is better than it is for shore dives, and the crevices of the reef are alive with sponges, big reef fish, gorgonians and even the odd camouflaged nudibrach (well disguised, soft-bodied, molluscs that shed their shells).

Expect to see red roman, steenbras, blacktail, zebra dn gibeyes, crayfish, sponges, baskets and starfish.
