It was here that my passion for Nudibranchs and Sydney’s Pygmy Pipehorse developed into an obsession lol (laughing out loud). My favourite local dive site is unquestionably Bare Island which consistently produces “sensational” dives and quenches my passion for Nudibranchs and Pygmy Pipehorses.
The best dive that I can remember having at Bare Island was the day I dived the East Wall. On this particular day we had great visibility and I found two orange angler fish within 10m of each other! Prior to this day I had only ever seen one orange angler in all my diving. Along with the angler fish I also saw a number of Pygmy Pipehorses.
Don’t get into the habit of thinking that there isn’t much to see at Bare Island, trust me I have found on a regular basis, all types of angler fish, pygmy pipehorses, a huge diversity of nudibranchs and some of the rarer sea creatures I have seen here include, a whaler shark, turtles, ornate ghost pipefish, robust pipefish and penguins! You just need the right guide. Haha ;)
