Ex HMAS Hobart

First dive on the Ex HMAS Hobart for quiet some time. The first few photos were taken inside a machinery space using my torch which seems to be quiet good as a video light. Blue Devils have moved in to many of the spaces and can be found throughout the ship. The upper deck and superstructure have become a fantastic reef system as some of the photos will show. Thanks to Thong dong and Vicky for making this a very enjoyable dive. This was an awesome dive on the HMAS Hobart today with Alan, Thong, Vicky, Dong, Pat, Alex, Gareth, and Angela. For this dive we had boat covers. SURPRISE 😜 Big thanks to Whiskey for lending us his boat.

Hallett Cove

 
Christmas eve dive at the North end of Hallett Cove. The reef system is part of Seacliff Reef with a ledge running parallel to the shoreline.
Whiskey and Dong were looking for crabs but there was not very many to be found. I managed several photos of a Blue Devil otherwise there was only the local Bulls Eyes and a number of Leather Jackets.
Whiskey did miss an anchor so it remains on the bottom for another day
Water temp was 20c and vis was excellent and out to 10 meters.

Stanvac Jetty 4 Aug 20

A great day conditions were good except somewhat cold with the water temp only 13c and air temp not much different. The fish life is a bit sparse with only the local's reef fish hanging around. Of interest the cuttle fish that has been seen on several dives is still there. Visibility was good due to the lack of rain we have had in the past few weeks.
There was a slight current that picked up pushing us towards the anchore so the return journey was relaxing despite the cold.
A pie and a few beers at Whiskey's place rounded the day off nicely.

Various Dives During Lockdown

  • The annual on the Seawolf  was the last sanctioned dive and social since last meeting and lockdown. The club placed extra star droppers between the Seawolf and Lumb. The name on the Seawolf was also cleaned. Members of the club have been active in the water with Rod securing largest cray for the season. Apparently it was walking over sand saw Rod and gave up. It weighed in at 5.1KGs. Other divers have been active with local dives at The Dump, Stanvac Block and Jetty, Rapid Bay and Second valley and many more. Cleve mentioned that he had dived Port Noarlunga using a scooter and was able to get around both reefs on a single tank of air. Below are a few photos from members dives. 

Whiskey's Local dive 19 Mar 20

Today was Whiskey's weekly local dive. We set out for the Dump as conditions were not the best with a strong northerly wind blowing.
It was not long after dropping anchor that we were all in the water. Under the water things calmed down and with almost no current we were greeted to almost 20 meters visibility and the most fish I have seen along the coast for many years.
Whiskey went looking for a shark shield that he had dropped on a previous dive whilst Dong and I took pictures along the way at the many features that are present.
It was as we were almost back to the boat that Whiskey found an anchor that needed to be recovered. Back at the boat the wind had dropped out and it was a comfortable ride back to the boat ramp.
