Cook Island, North Face

Location: Tweed Heads
State: NSW
Diver Qualification: Open Water
Average Depth: 12mtrs
Max Depth: 20mtrs
Average Visibility: 10mtrs
Access Type: BOAT
Directions: Launch on the Tweed, cross the bar with care, head South for about 5 min. Moor on the North-West side of the island, where there is a 4 m wall.
Description: A 4-6 m wall runs roughly north-south along the NW side of Cook Island. The top of the wall is about 6 m, making this a good second dive. Cook Island is now a marine reserve with a fishing exclusion zone, so there are a lot of fish.

When it gets currenty elsewhere in the area, turtles in large numbers are found here. About 10 m out from the base of the wall, docile leopard sharks are often found. The wall itself has lots of hiding places for cuttlefish, wobbiegongs and blind sharks, and bull rays. Spotted Eagle rays also frequent the area.
