Fodor's Expert Review Cod Hole

Lizard Island Reef Fodor's Choice

For divers and snorkelers, the usually crystal-clear waters off Lizard Island are a dream. Cod Hole, 20 km (12 miles) from Lizard Island, ranks among the best dive sites on Earth. Massive potato cod swim up to divers like hungry puppies; it's an awesome experience, considering that these fish can weigh 300 pounds and reach around two meters (6 feet) in length. The island lures big-game anglers from all over the world from September to December, when black marlin are running.
