Shark and Yolanda Reefs are two twin mounts that extends for hundreds of meters below the surface. This dive is best and most often done as a drift dive dropping in on Anenome City. Then swim across blue for a few minutes to hit shark reef, which starts at about 26 meters below the surface and resembles a submerged mountain peak. The eastern end of the site is a sheer vertical wall that extends to the sea bed downwards. Whichever side you choose the current will take you on to Yolanda reef, another pinnacle with the remaining part of the ship Yolanda.

Many species of fish can be found here. Hammerheads, gray tipped, white tipped, and all the other open sea fish, including barracudas and gigantic tuna can be found east of the vertical Eastern Wall. There also seems to be a permanent school of Snappers hovering there at all times. There are thousands of Jackfish, Batfish, and all kinds of sting rays on the densely coralled saddle. Fantastic colour, soft corals, every type of small fish, as well as huge Napoleon Wrasses, turtles, giant morrays, rays, jacks, tuna, barracuda and sharks. Stunning! Also the scorpion fish can be seen here quite often as it is quite a rare sight elsewhere. Anemone City has plenty of anemones with the usual clownfish crowd and it is a good place to see giant moray eels.

This is surely no place for the beginner. Though some divers get into the site by swimming eastward across the channel from Anemone City, shore, individual, or unguided dives are strongly not advised.
