Sisters Rocks is a series of magnificent pinnacles 12 kilometres to the north of Pirates Bay off Cape Surville in 40+ metres, with sheer walls and canyons.
The best diving is on the seaward end of the Outer Sister. Here huge schools of Butterfly Perch patrol the vertical drop-off At the base of the drop-off there are large forests of sea whips, up to two meters in length. Numerous large bommies and good fish life is a feature of this dive. The walls are covered in Gold Zoanthid Anemones, soft corals and sponges, with dense gardens of sea whips in the deeper parts. Large schools of Butterfly Perch are common.
For advanced and deep divers the best diving is on the seaward end of the Outer Sister that leads to a vertical drop-off.
Open water certification holders will find good diving on the rock walls and reefs along the sides of the island chain.
The diving is particularly good on the rock walls between the Second and Outer Sister.
