Quarry

LOCATION: Approximately 2km south of Fish Hoek.

ACCESS: Measure 2.2km from the Fish Hoek Traffic circle and park in the parking area on the left. Kit up alongside the road and cross the railway lines, to the flat rocky formation directly ahead. This is a fairly easy entry, but time your exits carefully. The reeds extend straight out from the shore
CONDITIONS: Best dived during winter after a strong north-westerly wind. The surge can be strong as it is fairly shallow and in the path of oncoming swells.  
AVERAGE DEPTH: 7m
MAXIMUM DEPTH: 10m
The site gets it's name from the Glencairn quarry on the mountainside opposite. The reefs consist of rocky gullies and there is an artificial reef created by numerous old car tyres that were dumped into the sea to attract sea life. It has been a success and a variety of reef fish are found there. There are many nudibranches and big sea-fans. Playful seals are sometimes encountered.
BUBBLE BLOWERS RATING: 2 Bubbles
