The divesite of Hidden TreasuresOn the southern end of South Solitary Island is Cable Trail, named after the location of a Trawlers cable that allowed for easy navigation, now all but gone.
Cable Trail is a divesite that can be full of exiting and unusual fish one day, to a quiet and somewhat plain site the next. But it always has a hidden unusual critter that you would not find on other sites.
The mooring is located on the top of a 12-14 metre platform that has very large rocks spread over it.
Not far away from the mooring, as you head away from the island, the bottom drops away to 18 mtrs and follows in a south easterly direction the edge of the island, slowly getting deeper and deeper.

Hazards or DangersCurrents: No current usually, an ideal site for the first dive in the area, as it is an easy dive.
Be careful with your depth when crusing along the island direction heading south, it is very easy to be deep before you know it in this area!
Cable Trail is usually the choice mooring in days with North easterly sea breezes, because is allows for protection behind the island, but be careful with Southerly swells, the swell can rebound off the island and make it very uncomfortable on a boat
