Kelp Beds Reef
Depth: 12 metres
Thisis one of the original all time great dives. It is on the Queens cliff side of the bay near point Lonsdale. The kelp on this particular reefgoes through many changes during the year, at its healthiest the kelpreaches the surface and makes a fantastic dive for anyone.
You can swimunder the canopy of the kelp and dodge the thick trunks. The kelp slowly dies off leaving a fast reef line, which becomes home for smaller fish and colourful corals and sponges. The kelp then produces new shoots and sprouts in all directions covering the reef line again,and blocking the suns rays suffocating the corals and sponges leavingan awesome picture of beauty as the canopy reaches for the surface once more.
