Not I.

I doubt many charters go there unless on the way to GBi.

Try Red Quarters who go to GBi on a regular basis.

If you do get out that way on a private boat ( expect plenty of current) try and check out some other sites out that way.
Anchorite Rock ( names after a submarine that hit it) and a granite barge that sits in 48 odd meters ( charted)

I've snorkelled it-roaring current and often dirty due to location and it's too deep to be of much interest to a spearo. I imagine you'd get sponges galore and wotnot down deeper in The Scubazone but you'd want to know what you were doing if tackling it in anything but the tiny slack water window.
