Our favourite new advanced dive site!
We havent dived the bridge at night yet, and it may not be much different from day (with the bad visability and green water) but the creatures may differ (maybe more sharks).
This dive site is not for the faint hearted. Last dive I personally saw two 6ft sevengill sharks, they can see you but you don’t see them until they are right in your face.
The bridge wreckage and sticky outy things down there can easily snag a diver so experience and confidence are a must (please don’t come to test your confidence, you can do that during the day).
Despite those things, it’s a cool, deep dive (up to 30m) with the eerie atmosphere and collapsed structure homing fish, anemones, giant crays and sharks.
The dive is dependent on tides, so I have set it at 20:30 (slack water). Be at the dive site 19:45. Dive site is the bridge accessed from the eastern shore. It’s a short scramble over some rocks to get in the water.
