Depending on the current, you can float to the right side of the reef and dive into a coral garden overlay with its lip at a distance of 21m. Large statue-shaped coral formations are spread throughout the middle of the bowl. All parts of the outer ridge are busy with fish and decorated with various hard and soft corals. Bargibanti pygmy seahorses are commonly found between the abundant soft coral. This is one of the spots that will leave even the most experienced diver in awe and admiration at the abundance of underwater flora. Be aware of occasionally strong currents.

Getting There

The Ridge is located in the northwest of the reef surrounding Hoga. The shallowest point is about 3m in depth and normally you can explore the outer part along the vertical wall.
