If the Viz were better these would be some of the best dives in the country. They are very tide dependant and require almost exact timing to do safely. But once down you are treated to 40m walls carpeted in feather stars in gorgeous pinks and oranges. Thornbacks are often found at the bottom. Congers in some of the holes with lobsters and crabs in others, and shoals of various fish sometimes in vast numbers.
Length: 100 - 200m
Max Depth: 48m is possible but you have to know where to look. 36m - 38m normal
Depth to deck: n/a
Viz: 3-6m, although 0m is quite normal after it's been raining.
Orientation: Longroom must be telephoned before diving. Get a full site orientation and be guided by an experienced user of the site before you attempt without super vision.
PEOPLE HAVE GOT THESE WRONG AND HAD TO BE PICKED UP AS THEY DRIFTED OUT TO SEA
A delayed SMB per diver is essential.
Areas of interest
The whole site is marvelous.
No Take Zone
All the lobsters, crabs and scallops are thought to contain hazardous levels of tritium.
