Details: Today we headed down to Waterfall Bay to dive the Cathedral Cave complex – a labyrinth of tunnels and caves beneath massive sea arches. This is one of those sites that you just have to dive for yourself, since photos just cant capture the experience. It was like this area was designed by divers, for divers, although i doubt anyone could conceive such magnificent structures. After descending beneath one of the arches, you descend into about 20m and head into the cavernous spaces below. Various boulders strewn over the bottom conceal cracks forming the entrance to a number of different tunnels that snake their way through the cliffs. Entering some of the tunnels is tight and you burrow your way through the tunnels that seem to go on forever but eventually open up in more great caverns. One of the more memorable was entering Skull Cave with two massive glowing eyes pulsating before you as you leave the darkness of the tunnels behind you. A guide is absolutely essential for this dive, especially for the first couple of visits.
