Stanvac Single Point Mooring

Whiskey Thong and Alan set out for a dive at the Stanvac Single Point Mooring
on the way to the dive site the conditions were not good with choppy seas and a brisk breeze blowing from the South West.
Once under the water everything was calm. The sea was a bright blue with good visibility and there was no current.
On the bottom we easily found the mooring that was teaming with fish of various species.
There was a school of whiting hanging around as well as the usual reef fish such as the Old Wives and Bulls Eyes.
Whiskey lost two of his reels at the start of the dive. So when it was time to surface Whiskey then spent some time looking for them after Thong and I started our ascent.

Stanvac Pontoons

Whiskey, Dong and Alan had a great day out diving at the Stanvac Dump
Today we dived the sunken pontoons just north of what used to be Port Stanvac. Although the pontoons are in close proximity of each other each has its own unique eco system. The first we came across was inhabited by Old Wives. Then there was Leather Jackets and the third was home to Bore Fish. In-between was a school of Silver dromond and I found nudiebranchs on the way back to the boat. During the transit to the pontoons we lost Dong however he did eventually make find his way to the pontoons.

Stanvac Dump

Today four members of Seawolves Dive Club, Whiskey, Dong, Thong and Alan went for a dive at The Dump just north of where Port Stanvac used to be.
Conditions were good with smooth sea and blue skies. In the water there was good visibility that was out to 10 meters and temp at 18c with negligible current.
There was plenty to see as we found an area where several pipes had been dropped. For the locals these provided a sanctuary for the bigger predators. There was the usual collection of fish life including Silver Drummond Leather Jackets and Old Wives.

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.
