Bottom Time: 50minutes

Max Depth: 15m

Details: The Poor Knights has so much to offer that we had to do a second trip..especially with conditions like they were. This time around we were promised some of the more iconic dive sites…starting with Middle Arch. This site has a smaller cave off to the side of the main arch where you can breach the surface into an air pocket. Very cool to be able to take your regs out and have a little chat in the middle of the dive. Of course, i couldn’t capture the experience in photos..its just gotta be done. The main arch was very atmospheric too with large schools of fish, and morays and scorpionfish amongst the boulders. Truly a world class dive.

Camera Details: Tokina 10-17mm 2 X YS-D1 Strobes
