 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): Perfect dive site for for either day or night diving, in almost all weather! The western side (right-hand side as you enter the island) is the most sheltered part, and is diveable virtually at any time. Visibility can be very poor, it has good macro life, with seahorses. It can be crowded with scuba divers, particularly on weekends. The eastern-side is more exposed. You can circle the whole island if you have a large tank and/or you are good at air. There is a wall with lots of interesting sponges, nudibranches and other sea life about 100m to the south. You can dive from the shore if you are good at air, but it's best to dive from a boat. Attempt the dive at the south wall only at high tide, there are very strong tidal currents there.

Wildlife - Bare Island has heaps of Nudibrachs. Head to the left (northern side) and you'll come accross plenty. Also loads of sponge life on both sides, and verticle walls to swim up and down on both sides too.

Bare Island shelf - Good easy dive site that's interesting enough to keep me interested time and time again. If you go out on the right side (looking away from the shore) and keep heading out to the south, there's a good rock wall with heaps of cuttlefish
