A SMALL group of keen local divers headed to Rainbow Beach last weekend to dive Wolf Rock.

Wolf Rock is a fabulous dive site, just north of Double Island Point.

The underwater terrain consists of a number of pinnacles, and boulders with narrow gorges.

The site is renowned for its large numbers of resident grey nurse sharks.

The divers were not disappointed.

Up to 10 sharks were sighted in the sand gutters hovering just above the bottom.

Eagle rays, large gropers, and a school of barracuda were also sighted by the divers.

Underwater visibility can occasionally be poor around Wolf Rock but on Sunday, it was in excess of 20m.

Because of its remote location, Wolf Rock is best dived by experienced divers.

Currents do occur and the depth exceeds 30m.

The operators of Wolf Rock Dive Centre are an experienced dive couple who have been conducting dive tours to the site for almost 20 years.
