This is a great dive very close to shore, best accessed by boat though due to the fishing vessels from the harbour. A fabulous pinnacle, that on our occasional good viz days you can see from top to bottom....but generally a 4-7m viz. Excellent for nudibranchs, we have so many species here. I have seen also bronzies on this dive, lots of shy sharks and pajama sharks. generally you go here for macro though. Every inch of the reef is covered in life...in every colour...which yes means it is quite cold. 10 -15 average.

Strawberry anemones, a darker shade than usual and a bit smaller. These were almost a deep orange/red as opposed to the various shades of pinks I normally see.

Study of a basket star. We were blessed with so many subjects on Hakskeen today, but this one stood out the best.
