Cleaner Station....... South Solitary Island
Big Fish, Small Fish.
Cleaner Station is located right on the North eastern point of South Solitary Island. It has a large boulder blocking the entrance to the gutter which is a noted "Cleaner Station"
Hazards or DangersCurrents: Depending on the season, Cleaner Station Mooring can be exposed to quite strong currents, this can make it difficult to start and finish the dive in the same location. (the Cleaner Station gutter itself is usually calm)
The current usually heads from north to south around the island, and can be too strong to swim against. Cleaner Station on a small current day, is a good mooring to start a drift dive for a long duration. Beware! The current at this point can swing divers around the Eastern side of South Solitary, not the side to drift dive, usually!
Be careful if you are diving from a boat without a surface watch! We do not recommend this in this area with that current!
We usually operate our charter Dive Trips to utilize the currents, not fight them, We start at Shark Gutters or Cleaner Station and drift along the Boulder wall, finishing usually near the Gantry Mooring. This Drift Dive is a favourite of all who join us!
