This site is on the World Heritage list and is a “no take” zone. The reef is great for diving, snorkeling and kayaking. Divers regularly see spotted eagle rays, southern stingrays, turtles, moray eels, dolphins, several shark species, barracudas and tropical reef fish. Interesting fact: The site is named after the English pirate John Glover.
