The reef of Marie Pampoen pleasantly slopes down and it is quite hilly. You find some elk horn corals along the pier. Between 8 and 12 meters you find many finger corals. You will be able to see different kinds of morays, swarms of yellowtail snappers, spotted scorpionfish, big parrotfish and if you are lucky you see Tarpons and Southern Stingrays on the sandy spots.

Carpile starts at 15 and ends at about 40 meters depth. Swim at the surface to the place where the first rooms of the Breezer hotel starts. This will take roughly 8 minutes. After that you dive towards the right side in the direction of the carpile. Go down to a depth between 5 and 10 meters till you reach the construction material.
