Leather Jacket Alley is similar to Broken Bottom. Apparently there are naturally formed gutters, but visually is similar to other SA sites. There are a number of different types of fish that come here however, including the Leather Jacket the site is named for.
The Dredge

This site is generally known just as "The Dredge". It's the sister ship to "The Barge" which is sunk nearby and is an easy swim (star droppers show the way). This is probably one of the best wrecks available to OW divers in SA. The deck is about 14m, and the sea floor is 20m making is a easy dive. There is typically a few schools of fish swimming over the wreck, plus crabs, cuttlefish and other creatures hiding under the hull. The Dredge is also known as The South Australian 'The Dredge'.

Been many years since I had dived here, but you may still need a permit to snorkel and it probably still is rated as a Cave Dive and will require a Cave certification to dive this site.
