Pimpernel Rock – This Saturday 27th May! Who Wants to Come??
Big Fish, Big Cave, Big Depth.…. Big Dive!!
Pimpernel Rock is located on the north western point of The Solitary Islands Marine Park, 40 nautical miles from Coffs harbour! It is an advanced dive site on it’s best day, because of a few factors; The sheer depth of the site, and the vulnerability of currents.
This area is known for Large Pelagic’s including big Kingfish and Mulloway and common sightings of Grey Nurse Sharks in the deeper cave areas.
Pimpernel Rock is mind blowing when you get the conditions right! The descent down the peak leads you into the entrance of the Cave which is more like a huge swim through! Within the cave you will find deep water marine life such as Sea Tulips and Sea Whips, not to mention all of the Grey Nurse Sharks! The Bottom of the Cave is 39 metres deep and areas around can get deeper. Your dive time is very limited with the depth, but if you multi-level with the use of computers, you can extend your bottom time.
Start Time 7.00am
Pimpernel Rock is 1.5+ hours north by boat so we plan to start at 7.00am. Due to the extended distance we charge an extra $60 per diver.
Limited Spaces Available
Space is limited. We will be taking a maximum of 10 divers on this trip so book early to avoid missing out!
Experience Level Required
Due to the nature of the dives, you must hold an Advanced Open Water rating or higher, with a minimum of 30 dives including evidence of recent Deep Diving.
