Diver's Notes

The name of the site is said to come from one of the swim-through caverns where you can in suitable conditions come out from the top of it like from pistol's mouth.

Mostly rocky bottom, lots of swim-throughs. Some sandy areas. Large areas of sea grass.

Air temperature aprox. +30 C, windy and a bit cloudy. Little of dwelling on surface, in deeper water almost still.
