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. 

Christmas Diving By Sea Wolves

Since the last meeting the club has been very active. Just before Christmas several members set out for Edithburgh for jetty diving. After dodging bush fires and electrical and dust storms the party made it to Edithburgh and conducted an inspiring night dive but the next morning conditions were not so good on the surface but still excellent in the water around Edithburgh with a great many photos taken. Next was Port Giles. When Alan jumped in off the jetty and turned toward the Jetty he could not see it, Vis was down to inches if that so that dive was called off. There was another night dive at Edithburgh and dives at Point Turton and a memorable dive at Port Hughes where a mobility scooter was found at the end of the jetty.

Cape Jaffa and the Cray Bash was extremely popular. One or two divers even had time during the hunt to look around and see creatures other than crays. Johnno mentioned that he saw an Eagle ray with a wing span of over two metres.

Wolf took Jugs under his wing and found him a small cray to catch this took Jugs most of the dive; meanwhile Wolf lands a giant of a cray. However next time out, Jugs is off catching his own reasonable size crays. New Years Eve saw Johnno and Mustard both bring in a 4.4 Kilo cray each only to be out done by Rod who landed a 4.85 kilo monster.

There was also a lot of local diving at the Dump, Lumb and Seawolf, Seacliff Reef and Victor Harbour with ideal diving conditions warm water and good vis. All the sites had an abundance of fish life and several Leafy Sea Dragons had been seen at The Bluff Victor Harbour.

Jetty Diving Yorke Penninsular 22 -23 Dec 18

Over the weekend 22-23 Dec a group of eight divers from the Sea Wolves drove across to Edithburgh to dive several jetties along the coast of York Peninsular.
First dive was on Edithburgh Jetty this was a relaxing afternoon dive and although there was quite a strong wind blowing the conditions under water was excellent. There were sightings of seahorses and lots of other small interesting critters.
The next dive Saturday was at Wool Bay. Here several Leafy Sea Dragons were seen.
After a good meal at the Coobowie Hotel it was once again off to Edithburgh Jetty for a night dive. Again there was a cold southerly wind blowing however once in the water it soon warmed up as the water temp was 21C.
Sunday we drove up to Port Hughes where a great dive was had by all. There was plenty to see from Fiddler Rays, Port Jackson Sharks, crabs and nudiebranchs of various shapes and sizes.
At the end of Port Hughes Jetty there was a large school of yellow tail whiting or whatever they are.
The final dive for the weekend was at Wallaroo Jetty this was where Pat and Helen got their Christmas presents sorted with Helen finding a new pair of sunglasses and Pat bringing back a new fishing rod. A large Eagle Ray was also seen in the vicinity of the jetty.
