SHRIMP CAVE

/ 2 / 1

Shrimp Cave is very close to Reqqa Point and entry of the cave is found at around 34 metres , soon as you go in you will see a large peg that divers have used to tie off on, the entrance soon comes to an end and the cave is actually positioned above you. As you ascend at around 26 metres the water gets noticeably warmer, here you will find very strange rock formations inside with lots of prawns rushing around trying to escape from your torch light.

Particulars

The cavern could fit 6 divers in at most and you can always see the glow from the exit or the exit itself. The great thing about this dive is you can now incorporate Reqqa Point by going multilevel. It is easy to do a 45 minute dive without going into deco and have constantly changing scenery.

Warnings

Sensitive for all winds from north corner. Keep an eye on air pressure all the time when entering the cavern. You are deep!
