A good spot for crays, usually toward the end of the season. The occasional due fish hangs around in the deeper caves. As the name suggests male Australian sea lions hang around on the island and the surrounding waters, do NOT touch them, not only are they protected but they can get very violent when they get uneasy or pissed off. During mating season they can get very frisky and will become very inquisitive when you are diving, a brilliant opportunity for photographers but they can be dangerous. Great whites have been sited but no attracts have occurred to divers.
NOTE: It is not allowed on the island to take photos or get close to seals. It is a marine sanctuary.
