Kariparipa Point

January 21, 2022

After lunch on shore at Deep Water Cove, we drove the boat out to Cape Brett Lighthouse and Hole in the Rock to have a look.

Cape Brett Lighthouse

Hole in the Rock

We were meant to dive a site near Hole in the Rock but the swell had picked up and made it unsafe. Instead we headed to Kariparipa Point. It was clearly spawning season for the Demoiselles.


I also managed to find a swim through we discussed during the dive briefing. I was pretty happy about that as I've been focused on improving my navigation.
