Ongoing information about accessing Astrolabe Reef as well as updates about the state of the wreck will be published here.

Astrolabe 'Reef Watch' Update

Below is a brief summary of the latest updates ahead of the 2017/18 summer period.



Please note one of the four buoys has recently gone missing. This is to be replaced as soon as practicable.

As a reminder – the orange buoys marking dive sites 1 & 2 are intended for diving activity first and foremost.

Vessels longer than 10 metres are asked NOT to use them for mooring purposes, unless assisting divers when entering and exiting the water. Mooring should only be for limited periods.  


Skippers are reminded to avoid anchoring on the Reef, as far as possible.
