 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): You can successfully dive this site from Shore. Just follow the rocks out to the headland and look for the two rusting steel (rio) bars sticking up in the sandstone rock formation near the water line. Site update: I just dived this site on the weekend and the two steel bars are no longer there. So look for the huge flat headland where the fisho's go and enter the water from the flat rock just north of that. This will be covered in seaweed, juts out into the ocean and at the northern end it curves back into the headland in a scollop. You enter the site at this point heading east away from the shore. You can dive here and stay up on the rocky shelf above 8m till you reach the drop off. At the drop off, don't descend straight away...move off eastward, to find Grey Nurse sharks swimming along the bottom. They are normally associated with a small cave in the area. Once you see them swim out over the top of them (so as to not scare them away) before dropping down to 17m and watching them from the bottom, east of their location. This plan will have them penned in against the wall/cave. When ready, you can move off and head North to follow the reef system back in towards the beach area and exit on the sand. Enjoy!
