Exmouth pier entry/exit

Underwater directions: Enter the water just before high tide to make the most of the slack water period. Lots of wildlife including wrasse, blennies, gobies, tunicates and sponges. The old collapsed pier creates an overhang where lobsters and scorpion fish lurk, also two old cars which are interesting to explore. A great night dive where numerous conger eels can be seen.
