TURTLE BOMMIE – SCUBA DIVING SITE, LADY MUSGRAVE ISLAND
Exactly as it sounds, the Turtle Bommie is a turtle cleaning station for a large number of resident loggerhead turtles, green turtles and hawksbill turtles. It’s basically a day spa in the Great Barrier Reef for our resident marine life to pamper themselves and freshen up!
The highly territorial and tiny, colourful damselfish also visit to clean their shells and bodies. The Turtle Bommie is an isolated bommie surrounded by a sandy bottom and a depth of up to 10m. It’s filled with massive bushy corals and finger coral colonies, also known as porites.
There’s a rainbow of colours found in the Turtle Bommie with lots of small, tropical, colourful fish, such as blue and green chromis, damselfish and butterflyfish. These small, quick-moving marine fishes belong in the Chaetodontidae family with vivid colouration and striking patterns.
