The Washing Machine is a series of seven canyons between 12 and 28 meters. It is usually dived in less than 15m where the diver is treated to a rollercoaster ride when the current is running. Drifting into the canyons you are spun from one side to another in the current. Moving from one canyon to another can present problems and it is easy to be swept away. Best to stay close to the bottom and watch the small fish spin. Where they seem to be stationary is probably the best place to cross the current. It requires a good guide and some experience of current diving. Made at slack tide it is an easy dive.
