Southwood’s Corner, or Deep Southeast Whittle Ridge


A group of granite ridges in the Off-Whittle southern reefs area south of Whittle Rock reef on the sand at 55 m, rising to 37 m on top, running roughly north to south with quite a steep slope to the west and a sharp crest. Found and surveyed by multi-beam sonar from Wreckless II, but probably previously known to fishermen, as a small anchor was found near the top of the ridge. This site is not in a Marine Protected Area. A permit is not required.

These areas are situated along the South African Coast and are accessible to the public and are known dive locations to the locals from in and around the area, please respect their local fauna and flora, remember limit your catch and don’t catch your limit.
