Nice dive spot with medium current allowing a nice drift dive along the reef. Saw 2 napoleons, 5 sting rays and big moray eal. Loads of colorful fish playing in the coral. Recommend it.

It was good even for our 3yo little one. Nevertheless the stream and waves were pretty strong, a snorkelling will be fast:) We have met there lots of stingrays in October 2016 and a giant turtle in January 2015. There is also chance to meet...More

Visited this site and did 2 dives here while on a live aboard dive boat. Reef wall was stunning with loads of life and an enormous variety of marine life of all shapes and sizes. Worth a few dives.

Jackson is a superb dive site, turtles, healthy coral, huge diversity of marine life, a superb red anemone, octopus, fusilers, and on the far side of the reef you might get to see hammerheads. It can get very busy and good buoyancy control is essential....More

Amazing dive can be had if the hammerheads appear in the blue off the backside of Jackson reef! You hang in the blue water and wait and if you get lucky hammerheads come up from bottom to visit!
