Directions: Did this with Mike Ball.
Description: This site gets the 5 stars only for the Potato Cod.
If you want to see BIG fish up close and personal then you can't go past here. The Cod are very calm (When they are not being fed) and easy to approach when they are resting allowing for some amazing closeup photography.
This site can be swept by strong currents at times making it hard to descend to the bottom and swim around. There are plenty of Nudibranchs here (So I like Nudibranchs!) and there are plenty of other large fishlife as well. There is also a huge Moray Eel here as well, but I never saw it, I was only told there was.
Once they start the feeding, all hell breaks loose as everything swarms for their chance to grab the fish heads or whatever is being offered on the day. You can get some great pictures while this is going on. Ya gotta do this at least once in your lifetime.
