Description: VERY silty cave, great care must be taken while entering the water. Good dive, with a narrow tunnel down the back, but the whole is filled with black silt, so great care must be taken with your buoyancy.

If you stay out of the silt, the water is very clear, and there are lots of fossilised bones of animals to look at (hence the cave's name).

There is a second, smaller hole just north of the sinkhole, which can be worth a quick dive with your remaining air.
