Steel reef is a man made reef created in 2010. Consisting of 4 rough pyramid shaped structures, covered in soft coral. It can only be reached by boat. For a beginner AOW it can be an interesting deep dive, for an advanced diver it does not have a great draw as it has a high nitrogen loading, and short dive time due to depth for little value.
That’s not to say it is a bad dive site, you will see 5 line snapper, bluefin trevally, batfish, clown trigger and other normal Taiwan reef fish.
It is suitable only for AOW and above divers due to the depth, the artificial reef is located in 30M depth water. The structures are 10M in height so divers are in open water from 0~20m. Boats will sometimes go here if other sites have high current/poor vis.
