Minerva Ledge Scuba Diving
Minerva Ledge located some 10 nautical miles away from Havelock is a vast, shallow ledge of rock and coral north-east of Havelock Island. It is too large to take in on one dive, and so there are three locations on the ledge. The edge of Minerva Ledge tapers down into deeper waters towards the east, and is frequented by pelagic denizens like Tuna, Barracuda and Stingrays.
