Northern side of Breaksea Is. 250M from eastern end.
Depth 2 – 18M
The resident seals laze about on the rocks just waiting to enjoy
the company of any diver and ready to perform for any photographer
that cares to pass by. In the very corner of this cove is an interesting
rock overhang which is sometimes suspect to surge. However on
good days this is a very interesting swim a torch being essential.
Out from this cave the depth drops off into 15 – 18M and
you will find some interesting plate corals and gutters lined
with Gorgonian fans. Resident Port Jackson shark families are
often found resting on the sandy areas between rocky outcrops.
Seal Cove Dive 2
Depth 18 – 30M
North of the cove by approx 80M you will come across a group of
bommies that have some of the biggest gorgonian fans on their
walls you are likely to see. Along with these fans are spires
of southern black coral and the Brittle Star that makes them their
host entwined in their branches. On the sand at the base of these
bommies large King George Whiting swim in schools. Reef fish of
many species can be seen along the swim throughs. This site always
has something new to offer with a broad range of marine life living
on and visiting the site.
Visibility is rarely less than 20M and the site is sheltered from
all winds barring any strong from N – E.
