Thong and five other members of the Sea Wolves Dive club spent the weekend diving jetties on York Peninsular. Two night dives on Edithburgh Jetty and a excellent dive during the day on Saturday. Port Giles was also going to be dived but a ship had just left and Alan was first in and called the dive as he could not see the pylons from a meter away. After a lunch break we drove across to Point Turton. This was a short shallow dive but there was a lot of interesting critters to be seen. Saturday night was another night dive at Edithburgh jetty. Again there was plenty of fish life.
Sunday was a drive to Port Hughes jetty. A great dive with a large range of fish life including a large ray and lots of nudibranchs . At the end of the jetty was a mobility scooter that somebody has misplaced.
A great weekend was had by all.

A great dive with Whiskey and Thong at the now demolished Stanvac Jetty with
From the surface you cannot see any of the structure that has been left behind after the demolition however not far below there is still a substantial amounts of the jetty remaining and it has become a thriving artificial reef supporting a diverse range of local marine life.
As we started the dive we were greeted by a school of salmon trout rising from the depths and then circling us as we descended. There was so many that visibility was greatly reduced. and it has become a thriving artificial reef supporting a diverse range of local marine life.
At one point I came across a crab being eaten by a starfish. Also found a big bluey hiding under a shelf. There are plenty of local reef fish including Bore Fish, Silver Drummond and Leather Jackets that kept attacking thinking you were the next meal.ge of local marine life.

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.

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.
