Watch out for the currents too. Sigh... would dive there now if I could!

You forgot to mention the car stereos. masses of fishing line, and sinkers there for the taking, and of course the (not so) small rays that pass by maybe a little too cloce for comfort at times.
I do miss diving there, it was so interesting, jou never know what you will see from one day to the next.

I cant think of anything more relaxing, than being in the downunder, breathing some nice clean fresh filtered 21% nitrox.
