Description

Famous for large grey nurse sharks, turtles, large crayfish, schools of kingfish and yellowfin tuna. This is truly one of the great sites for advanced divers in NSW.

The dive site is accessed by boat and there is a permanent mooring buoy here. Drop down the line and you are likely to be faced with a few of the gentle giants of the area - grey nurse sharks - swimming around the giant rock at the bottom of the line. Recent reports have it that 30 different sharks have been seen in an hour dive here! More commonly 10-15 varying sized species are seen.

By following the boulder anti-clockwise (boulder on your right shoulder) for about 5minutes you reach a cave / swim through that attracts larger grey nurse sharks as well. These sharks glide in and out of the opening effortlessly and it is a special moment for any experienced diver. At nearly 40m this is usually the turn-around point.

We love scuba diving here and would recommend it to all scuba enthusiasts.
