Just off Cape Kri is a small rocky outcrop that drops down to 40 meters underwater. Pygmy Seahorse can be found in the Gorgonians at Mikes Point. It's named after the son of Max Ammer who was a pioneer of Irian Jaya diving. Large schools of reef fish are present including snapper, surgeonfish and fusiliers.

On a ledge at 25 meters are gardens of huge gorgonian sea fans, some of which are home to pygmy seahorse. Currents can be very strong at Mike's Point. To give an idea how strong, in WWII the rock was bombed because the speed of the tide left a wake that that made it look like a ship from above.
