Michael McFadyen's Scuba Diving - Tabbagai Gap
Another dive site between Botany Bay and Port Hacking that is rarely dived is Tabbagai Gap. This is located off the southern section of Botany Bay National Park. If coming from Botany Bay, head south past Cape Solander to GPS 34° 01' 35"S 151° 13' 53"E (note that all my GPS Readings are using AUS66 - if you use any other datum, you will need to convert the reading - see my GPS Page for more details).. This can be located by running in on the northern end of Tabbagi Gap till the depth comes up from 28-9 metres to 24-5 metres. Anchor here.
On the only occasion I have dived here we had huge seas and very poor visibility. However, the site was impressive, with a couple of walls dropping from 24 metres to 28 metres. The walls run roughly north-south and to the east the bottom is sandy with a few small boulders (note that this is not the real sand edge, it is further east). There a lot of small overhangs with cuttlefish, Port Jackson sharks and even firefish to be seen. A lot of ladder-finned pomfret, silver sweep and other fish like black reef leatherjackets can be seen here.
An interesting dive worth a few more dives in better conditions.
