Really cool place to visit must do



Did this and Ewans. Would do both again. Very different from each other. The clarity wasn't as good as Ewans but the crevice was insane to see. Even saw some eels.



The clarity wasn't all that great but it was still worth seeing. You swim along through all the algae and then all of a sudden there's a huge crevasse beneath you that drops about 110m give or take. It's like something from another world.
