Description: The main attraction here is the blow hole itself, it is a reasonably small opening in the top of the wall at around 18mtrs and descends down to around 25mtrs and then you travel horizontally for about 10-15mtrs till you come out the exit in the wall itself.

There are usually plenty of fish in the exit to the cave, it does not take much searching to find plenty of different varieties of Nudibranchs. There were plenty feeding on sponge and soft corals, I found a number of different types that were mating as well. A great place for macro photography.

Once you exit the cave, you can follow the wall in either direction to find gorgonian fans and other life on the wall itself. On top of the wall is plenty of sponges and soft corals in plenty of different colours. I recommend this dive.
