The boats you can see in the distance are on the close in parts of a very extensive reef that runs out on a north east to east direction.

The comers show the reef area.

Out through the bar or from the Currumbin bar is an extremely good scuba dive and free diving site called Palm Beach reef. This reef is at its best from 30 to 50 feet deep for intense amounts of mainly invert life, but does come up to 20 feet deep towards shore.
The best way to find this reef is to find a depth of 40 to 50 feet deep once out through the bar and use the sounder to find it by going south from Tallebudgera or north from Currumbin at that depth until you pick it up, or just look for all the other boats on a calm day.
This reef is open to most activities including spearing and collecting.
There is another small reef area called Miami Beach reef north of this and is roughly in 70 feet deep of water out off Jupiter’s casino, not a great reef.
