One Mile Gutters Print

A nice little dive. One Mile Gutters is a nice little dive, good for beginners through to  advanced divers. The dive site is made up of kelp covered reef that forms a series of gutters, where you can just about see anything! Large schools of squid cruising past at only 3 metres in depth, Port Jackson Sharks and their egg casings bound to the kelp on the bottom, schools of baitfish, Stingrays, Southern Eagle Rays (otherwise known as Bull rays) Morey eels, many other species of pelagic and even the occasional Grey Nurse Sharks.

ENTRY: You can get in to the water by a giant stride from the stern then swim to the bow.

DESCENT: Descend the anchor line holding the line all the way down.

DEPTH: On the top of the reef its about 5 metres and to the sand its around 9 metres.

BOTTOM TIMES: Can be up to 45 minutes. We recommend it to be around 35 minutes.

SAFETY STOPS: There is no safety stop required for this dive, but a slow ascent from every dive is important.

DANGER: Surge the surge can some times be a problem. Visibility can sometimes be down to 2 metres or so, but it can be up to 25 metres+ Depth can also be a danger as you could run low or run out of air.

IF YOU: Come off the reef: Do a normal ascent, surface, establish positive buoyancy, signal the boat and deploy your safety sausage. Wave your arm if you need help or your safety sausage and we will come and get you as soon as we can.
