I hadn't dived Barrens Hut since May last year. Conditions were
great but viz was variable. We anchored in the split and headed
back through the swim throughs. Lots of fish here, we were greeted
by a curious cuttle who hung around us for a few minutes. We
wanted to go through the cave and up the chimney but the kelp in the
cave looked quite thick and we decided not to risk getting caught up in
it. Past the cave we found 3 different nudies on the one plant.
And on the back was a number of brittle star fish - very small.
Even smaller was an orange fish not more than 5mm long which skipped
from plant to plant. At one stage it landed on one of my strobes.
Again, Barrens Hut does not disappoint but yields interesting creatures at every turn.
