Max Depth: 21mtrs
Average Visibility: 20mtrs
Access Type: BOAT
Directions: Book with Gary, Mick or Karen at Eaglehawk Dive Centre. The run a tour that takes about 30 - 40 minutes. It is the only way to see it in one dive and not get lost.
Description: The boat is moored under Cathedral Dome and the divemaster leads you into the Arch, along the Isles. This area is huge and has multiple openings although a torch is mandatory. Depending on the size and experience of the group the tour may include the Catacombs which is single file, low ceiling, and very dark.

The exit from the catacombs is beside the entrance and leads into the passage to Revelation Bend. This is a view that has little equal as you swim into "Skull Cave" and are confronted by the blue light coming in the "eye sockets of the skull" The large school of bullseyes add to the beauty of this view. From here a sharp right turn to the Devils tonsils is the exit to the Wall alive with jewel anemones, zoanthids and all sorts of fascinating invertebrate life.

You will want to do this more than once and there are several other caves that offer more or less challenge.
