This artificial reef is named after an underwater steel pipeline that is now broken up into pieces. There are several finger reefs to be found here interspersed with sand patches. Keep an eye out for the variety of juvenile wrasses to be found on this dive. This is a great spot to find octopus, leaf scorpion fish and the devil scorpion fish.

Having dove this site thousands of times i've seen everything... Tiger sharks, white tip reef sharks, huge frog fish, Sting, eagel & manta rays... Good dive site that is easy to dive from shore as well. Nice cement step entry both diamond head and eva of the pipe.

Nice for the second on a 2 tank dive. Relaxing and interesting; take your time and see the resident frogfish

The Pipe is a good site for beginners and intermediate level divers. Be sure to check out the reefs off the east and west sides of the pipe as they offer up a lot of eels and multiple nooks and crannies where critters hide. I have dove this site 6-7 time
