Octopus blends in with the scenery

Visit for a closer look at the wonders of the natural world. With the high tide being in the middle of the day and the swell being relatively small we had an opportunity to dive in the channel between the Knysna Heads. On the eastern side of this channel lies the Piquita wreck, which sunk in 1903 and therefore is a very well established artificial reef with over one hundred years of marine growth. The remains of the Piquita lie at a depth of about sixteen metres and mostly covered with soft sponge corals. There is also an abundance of fish that this reef has drawn to its vicinity, with schools of Mullet, Sand Steenbras and Musselcracker patrolling the area.
