The Caves

The Caves

Bison Cave Location: SE corner of Michealmas Island. Identified by a jumble of broken rocks on the SE corner of Michealmas Island. Anchor on the sand line and swim in. 

Description: This is “Dive Albany” at some of it’s best. Discover huge caves, gorgonian fans, colourful sponges, shells, prolific fish life and the famous “Grinding Rock”. Swim around these amazing rock formations, feel and hear the grinding as this huge rock moves with the water. It’s both frightening and exciting at the same time. Swim through the many caves and grottos, which seem to go on forever. A torch is a must for looking into cracks and crevasses. You will be back.

Depth: 7-286

Diver level: Open Water + (note: overhead environments are not recommended for divers without appropriate training)


Conditions: Best dived with 0 – 1m swell & SW – N winds as the surge can be quite severe inside these caves. Exposed to the easterlies.
