Skuljetti means ‘Couple of Reefs’ and after walking over rough coralline limestone, two rocks (big bear & little bear) do indeed come into view lying close together approximately thirty meters offshore. Between these reefs and the shore, the rocky seabed is only five meters deep and leads to a vertical drop-off. Directly below the two rocks, there is an interesting cave, Roger's Cave, with a variety of small corals and sponges covering its sides and ceiling. Outside the cave, the route follows the wall to the right around the bigger rock. Boulders of all sizes litter the seabed here, giving excellent refuge to many species
This dive site is very near Coral Cave.
Long walk across uneven, sharp and rocky terrain.
