This is a stunning dive named because of the presence of a large number of yellow sea cucumbers that create the yellow colour on this wall. Divers should try to visit the dive site in the afternoon when the sun adds to this colouring, with the natural sunset colours complimenting the dive wall.

The dive wall starts at around 5 metres and this site then goes to a depth of around 40 metres. Divers will find they will not need to descend that deep as most of the marine life is found in shallower parts of the dive. Divers can visit the site throughout the year but visibility is lower between July and August as the water temperature cools down and brings more nutrients that mix up with the water. Most divers come here between November and March.

As mentioned, the main reason why divers come to this site is for the large number of yellow sea cucumbers but these are joined by a large number of orange and yellow soft corals that add to the magical colouring of the wall. Amongst these corals, divers will find many different nudibranchs, small crustaceans, and coral polyps. Divers will find many fork-tailed basslets, butterflyfish, and clown triggerfish. Down in the deeper parts of the dive, there will be white tip sharks, turtles, and red snapper. The dive site makes for a great night dive site as well, as there are large numbers of smaller marine life that come out at night including many decorator crabs, cleaner shrimps, slipper lobsters, and Spanish dancers.
