Tell the truth, Golf Ball Reef barely qualifies as a reef. It lies off the drainpipe at Haggarty's Cove, and is no more than an expanse of low rock rubble delineated by sand. Right now, at 49 degrees and swathed in phytoplankton, it's not all that inviting, but it's certainly not quiet. Hundreds of one to two-inch rockfish have occupied the area, and mega quantities of inverts still provide plenty of fodder for photographs.

Here, large onespot fringeheads are usually out in the open and don't mind charging us!

Usually scarce as hen's teeth, can be seen on every dive.
