Rapid Bay 7 Aug 22

Despite others reneging on a dive Thong and I enjoyed Perfect weather conditions, sunny skies calm seas and very little tidal movement during our dive at Rapid Bay. The one thing missing was the vis. that was down to a few meters.
Swimming along the jetty there is a lot of new pylons and Debrie on the sea floor in the area that was damage a few months ago.
Although it was hard to find there was plenty of life along the jetty, we did not see any Leafy's But lots of the local fish and two oversize nudibranchs. Due to the reduced visibility, it was difficult to take photos.

Double dive

A couple of good dives last week with Whiskey and Dong. The first was off Brighton on a small reef that is of similar characteristics to Seacliff Reef only in shallower water. The second dive was at The Dump. Here conditions were silty but there was plenty of life to make the dive interesting

Diving the Ex HMAS Hobart

A great weekend diving on the Hobart with the Seawolf Dive Club. There were four boats out at the site each day, all had a good dives with Wolf having clocked up 15 minutes of deco on his second Dive. Weather conditions were just about perfect there was no wind so the sea was like glass and there was no any current on the second dive where as on the first dive Saturday the was a slight current as the tide was still going out..
Members explored the whole ship inside and out. First dive we went around the bow and second dive around the stern as well as many of the internal compartments of the ship.
Cruising back from the rudder I came across a nudibranch there were lots of Whiting ,Snook and plenty of young Snapper with one really large Snapper being seen on the first dive. There were also some more exotic fish such as the Blue devil and Bore Fish.
Saturday night Rudy and several helpers prepared a feast with a pig on the spit and several other roast meats were available also. Then there was the serious business of the wine tasting. Wolf's entry won convincingly.
After the dive on Sunday several members headed home while those that were lucky enough to have the time remained until Monday.
Warrina Cove Caravan Park was full I had not seen so many campers there before and the Seawolve's added to the numbers with fifty members and guests staying at the campsite.

Stanvac Jetty

A great dive at Stanvac Jetty with Whiskey. There was a small school of Whiting and plenty of Snapper but they did not come into camera range. Of course there was plenty of Nudibranchs to photograph.
Conditions were excellent with little current and about 10 meter vis. water was still a pleasant 22c. The structures are alive with marine growth and there is a big variety of marine life active every time we dive the sight. Unfortunatly today there was not any big schools of fish about but there was still plenty of Old Wifes magpie perch and Silver Drummond with many other spiecies present.

Seawolf and Dump

Thursday saw a group from the club out for a dive Dong, Thong, Vicki and Alaln. The journey out to the Seawolf was a bit lumpy and there were one or two swells well over a meter. We were a kilometer away from the dive site when Dong was so excited about the upcomming dive that he threw himself into the dive early and without his dive gear. Dong was brought back onboard unhurt and we continued to the dive site

Once in the water the conditions were magic the sea was tropical blue and vis was out to way past 10 meters.
There was plenty of fish life active around the wreck and the nearby tyre reef was full of life.
The swim through of the Seawolf was crowed with fish life that made it slow going. The dive was well worth the bouncing around on the journey out. By the end of the dive conditions had calmed down and it was a pleasent trip back to OSB to change over tanks for the second dive at the Dump.

An excellent second dive the conditions were as good as at the Seawolf and the sea had dropped out from the morning except for a slight swell. There was an amazing amount of fish including a Wobbygong, plenty of Snapper. with Bore fish,Blue Devils and a school of whiting around the two pontoons that we dived on.
