 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): A fantastic little spot if you have a boat or go with a dive company. On an incoming tide you can get up to 20m visability to see all the wonderful sealife here. Schooling fish can be seen here, nudibranchs apleny, and keep you eyes out for the giant cuttlefish!
On a more recent excursion here we discovered some weedy sea-dragons, a wobbegong and a few octopus.
Had lots of fun here with a camera. Nice relaxing dive and a great for newly certified divers.
