Bennett's Head Bommy is a great little dive that is close to home. Although close to shore, it is mainly done as a boat dive. Being only ten meters deep, you have a long bottom time which is great because you need the time to be able to explore the entire dive site. The reef extends about 80 meters along the ocean floor and the Bommy stands on the ocean floor and extends up above the surface of the water. There are a series of gutters throughout this dive that are made up of large, kelp covered rock walls. If you get in close and look beneath the kelp, you will find hundreds of different species of rock dwelling fish and small crustaceans.
You can expect to see almost anything on this dive, on some occasions Grey Nurse Sharks have been seen, along with the common Loggerhead Turtles sleeping in close to the reef, Blue Gropers, Morey eels, Stingrays and hundreds of different species of small colorful fish just to name a few. On one side of the Bommy, there is a small cave that you enter. This cave is literally filled with crayfish and towards the back of the cave there is a ledge where you will often find Wobbygong sharks sleeping in large numbers. This dive is not only good to dive at any time of the day, but it also makes a fantastic night dive.
