The weather turned foul overnight with wind and bigger swells. It was raining on and off during the morning, and there was a fair bit of swell as we were gearing up. I was still feeling a little nauseous as we jumped into the water!
We descended straight into about 20 metres of water over some massive rock platforms that were absolutely covered in fans, coral gardens and fish life. The site is covered with big rocky outcrops and some nice gutters. At the top of the site is a beautiful shallow reef. Absolutely gorgeous dive!
I saw a couple of ribbon eels (one black and one blue and yellow), a lionfish, three seamoths (bizarre looking things as they’re crawling around on the gravelly bottom), lots of fusiliers, oriental sweetlips, angelfishes and butterflyfishes, a pair of scissortail dart gobies that darted back into a hole as I swam over, spotted boxfish, a giant pufferfish, a spiny lobster hiding in the crack of a rock, and a few predatory giant trevally looking for their next meal.
