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.

Hallett cove 5 March 20

Todays dive was with Whiskey, Thong and Dong.

We were diving at Hallett Cove the sea was a bit lumpy but under the water was good.

Their was almost a dodge tide today and all the fish appeared to be hiding. However there was almost no current which made for a relaxing dive.

The area had a small ledge which ran for about 20 meteres and there was a few local fish hanging out but not much activity.

There was several Blue Devils all where hiding and we could not get a clear photo of any.

Whiskey caught several crabs for a feed. I also found an interesting Hermit Crab.











Port Noarlunga 25/02/20

On Tuesday members of the club dived the north reef of Port Noarlunga. This is a shallow site with a max depth of 8 meters. In this area the reef drops below the water level so you are able to easily swim across  to the outside. I find this area far more interesting than diving from the jetty as there are swim throughs, ridges and small drop offs to explore. Today we saw a large school of Silver Drummond and two dolphins were seen following the Silver Drummond.
Conditions were good for diving with little or no current and water temp was at 22c. Visibility was reduced slightly due to fine particles in the water.
No dive is complete without a anchor recovery and this was no exception with two anchors recovered from the reef one taking a lot of work to free it

The Pines

A few photos from the dive yesterday.

We were just a few kilometers off shore and not too far from Brighton Jetty.

There was excellent visibility and water was at 22c. The max depth for the reef system we were diving was 10meters.

The surface conditions were also excellent with almost no wind so the sea was flat like a lake.

Australia Day Long Weekend Dive

 A group of divers from the Sea wolves Went diving at Rapid Bay on Monday of the Australia Day Weekend. Meeting at 8am in the car park we all quickly geared up for the first dive. Conditions were not that promising as we could see the water ripping through the jetty leaving a trail at the pylons. Once in the water we were swept up with the current and once at the old jetty it was a continual battle to make headway without being swept away from the jetty. However despite the conditions there was an incredible amount of fish life all along the jetty. Trying to take photos was not easy and it was dig in and hold on whilst taking the shots but it was worth it as the fish life all along the jetty was amazing.
