Dolphin Den is a maze of shallow tunnels and caverns so extensive that you could in fact spend your whole dive inside exploring them.

The site got its name in the 1980s after a a group of divers found the remains of a pod of dolphins there.

Then in 2007 once again a pod of dolphins got trapped and it is believed that they went in for the school of silversides and then got disorientated and drowned.

But you don’t need to worry for if in the unlikely event you do get lost, there are plenty of openings in the ceiling. These openings also let in lots of natural light to help you spot the channel clinging crab and green moray eels that frequent the maze.

Friends of mine ran this wonderful little place called Marble Hills on the North Side, and although it took me forever to get out diving with them, when I finally did this site became a firm favourite of mine!
