Hapuka Rock and reef, out of the bay heading towards Hot Water Beach, rises up out of nowhere to 6m, from a depth of 25m on the ocean side and 20m on the western end. The most startling feature is the sheer 20m drop off to the sand on a wall covered with jewel anemones, mauve finger sponges and colorful encrusting sponges. This is a top dive and can be very rewarding for the hunter, at certain times of the year. Being a pinnacle, the top 10m of the reef is a good area for spotting kingfish.
