Jackson Bar

You can see them right from when you descend on the line. On the sandbanks surrounding the reef they rise like a flock of birds and elegantly glide away, these Kuhl Sting Rays are what drive divers to this site. It was discovered by and named after Johnny’s third brother Jackson who is also an instructor on the Island.
Along with Dixon’s Pinnacles and Johnny’s Gorge, it completes the holy trinity of must see dive sites around Havelock.

Its unique location and the strong currents that run perpendicular to the site makes it a regular haunt for pelagics and divers who don’t mind a challenging dive.
The topography forms a flat rocky shelf with a stunning variety of corals that slopes down towards the sandy area that lies below 30 meters depth, making it a deeper site than most. Standing in welcome, you would find massive schools of Bengal snappers, Barracudas, Andaman sweetlips and Tuna.
