Southern Arch

Southern Arch is an impressively steep archway that towers over 40m above the surface. Its sides are steep and vertical, dropping to just 10m at the northern end and sloping to 40m or more at the southern end of the arch. This dive site can have strong current.

The strong current here can attract large schools of fish. The walls are covered in invertebrates and nudibranchs can be spotted too.
