Chunnel

This is a dive site for everyone, it has three main features – a pinnacle that spirals rapidly up towards the surface, an overhang that provides a sheltered hiding place for many of the shoal’s shier residents, and the famous Chunnel Cave.

It is home to the sand tiger shark in the winter months and full of other marine life throughout the year as well as the potatoe bass, turtles and shoals of snapper and gangs of patrolling batfish.
