Underwater attractions

Cape Awkward is a fantastic dive site! You begin at a depth of about 2 meters and follow a cliff face down to a depth of about 9 meters; afterward, the cliff continues its descent in leaps and bounds, eventually stopping at the seabed about 40 meters below the surface. Not only is this a fun multi-level dive site with interesting rock formations and lots of grottoes to explore, it is home to a wide array of marine life, ranging from soldierfish to groupers. Watch for lobsters, crabs, moray eels, and octopus here, too.
