Gordon Reef is known and easily identified by the wreck of the Panamanian cargo ship Loullia (3461 tonnes) which ran aground in September 1981.

Best done as a drift dive you have the opportunity to observe various species of coral, small nudibranches hidden in the crevices and the soft corals, White Tip Reef Sharks, and Eagle rays. Halfway along the reef you will spot many metal drums which have formed into an artificial reef and home Octopus and different types of eel such as Moray, Peppered, and Gold edged morays. Divers need to be careful of strong currents at the north and south ends of this reef.
