Directions: Travel along Anzac Pde to La Perouse. As you go around the circuit, Bare Island is on your left as you look out the heads. It is connected to the mainland by a wooden foot bridge.
Description: This is a well known site for car breakins at night!

There are heaps of different dive sites. For a nice relaxed night dive, don't cross the bridge but go down to the left. Enter the water from the rocks 50 m from under the bridge. When you get in, snorkel across the sand.

Drop down ( about 5 m ) and head south. Great reef, nudi's, cuttlefish, weedy sea dragons, eels, occasional sea horses.

Cross the bridge and go down the other side, go under the bridge to the west, get in anywhere you can and again, head south. On this dive, you can get down to about 18 m. Vis is often better here and in winter, expect to see Port Jacksons, but you have to look for them.
