Hey divers, let’s head over to the Iron Pot lighthouse for a dive
Meeting at the Olinda Grove dive shed at 9:00am sharp then onwards to Margate Jetty (Dru Point) to launch the boats and head over to IronPot for two boat dives
The island itself has some great marine life to see, and there’s a good sized ‘tunnel’ into an expansive cave underneath the island that we’ll seek to visit
Please bring a torch, warm clothes and lunch/water for the boat
If weather isn’t great on the day, we’ll aim to still get out for some other local dives such as 9-pin point or tinderbox etc.
