Access to the spot is either by boat or from the shore, at the end of Prince of Wales Drive. Climb over the low wall and find a suitable route to the water edge. It is recommended that you should only take a small tank with you, due to the difficult route.
On the southern side of the wall, many caves and tunnels are waiting to be explored. Inside the tunnels divers are able to see bream, luderick, huge mullaway and crayfish to name just a few.
The average depth here is at 12 m/39.4 ft and the maximum depth is at 27 m/88.6 ft. Visibility is medium (varies from 5 m/16.4 ft to 10 m/32.8 ft long) and it is good on high tide. Water temperature is up to 21°C/69.8°F in summer and early autumn months and between 14-18°C/57.2-64.4°F in winter.
