Noosa Heads, Noosa Area
Jew Shoal is one of Noosa's top attractions, situated in the beautiful Laguna Bay. It is a large reef system of ridges, canyons, bommies, and an impressive solitary 11 metre pinnacle. The Caves dive site has rugged rocky outcrops and swimthroughs, with gutters covered in colourful hard and soft corals, and reef fish including angelfish, butterflyfish, surgeonfish, globefish, rabbitfish, soapfish, morwong, sweetlip and bream. The coral gardens are home to an array of invertebrates - sea stars, feather stars, shrimp, hermit crabs, urchins, brittle stars, cowries and over 100 varieties of nudibranchs. Seasonal manta rays and grey nurse sharks also visit occasionally.
