Rapid Bay 15 Aug 23

A good dive this morning at Rapid Bay with Pete and Daniel from the Seawolves. Visibility was about 10 meters.
There was only a slight current as we were almost on slack water. Temperature was 13 degrees which was alright in my semi dry.
It was interesting to see what had happened to the jetty. A lot of debris has been dropped to the sea floor, so you do have to be aware of sharp and protruding objects. There were fish starting to take up residence amongst the ruins of the old jetty I think it will become a good artificial reef.
I have posted several photos of the debris.

Seawolf dive 22 Feb 23


A good dive at the Seawolf. With Pete whiskey and Dong. Sea was calm vis was out to ten meters to start with then reduced on the change of tide water temp was 22c. We were able to get measurements of the shaft for Gra-ham so that they can build a coupling to fix a new propeller to the wreck. We also recoveredwith some difficulty a good-sized anchor.

Below are some photos from around the wreck

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.

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.
