Christmas Eve 2011 we have a fantastic dive at Barrens. We anchor right
in the split where we know the anchor cannot move and head towards the
caves. The viz is excellent. Wayne sees and Eagle ray swim pass but I
miss it. At the first cave are 2 cuttles under the ledge at the front
of the cave. We swim through the first cave, then head further along
and down into the second cave. There's another cuttle above the ledge in
the cave and the giant trevally are swimming on the outside of the
cave. We then head over the wall and down to the last cave and tunnel.
There is some kelp in the back of the cave but not enough to stop us
going through. There are lots of bullseye at the top of the chimney and
one eyed pullers. As always there are groper swimming around - both
male and female. Old wives abound as well.
This is such a wonderful dive that I don't want it to end but it as to.
