About the event
Skipper: Geoff Geard
DO: John De boer
Cray Canyon is a huge canyon which gets its name from the discarded recognisable due to the cray pot that sits at the bottom. Originally named the Canyon it quickly gained notoriety as a great spot for catching Crays hence the current name. There are a number of caves and tunnels that lead off the main canyon, the main one of which ends in what could be described as a chimney upto the surface of the reef. There is always something different to see here, making it a Club favourite. As its name suggests there are crays.
Proving allusive for some time it was rediscovered recently by Mike Buchanan. This is a unique site... a large flat rock shelf 3-4m below the surface shields the entrance to Julie's Cave, which has two levels (one above the other) - both of which penetrate the reef for around 50m. The lower level is quite wide and flat with a sandy bottom while the upper level, although smaller and narrower, is large enough to swim through comfortably. Both entrances provide plenty of light . The area surrounding is also highly attractive, containing many lovely gullies and swim-throughs to explore.
