Seawolf and Stanvac Jetty

Great day diving the Seawolf and Stanvac Jetty with Dong, Whiskey, Hogg, Thong and Alan. Really good conditions plenty of life at both sites including nudibranchs, blue devil and Bore fish and the occasional Snapper.
Hogg had to retrieve Whiskeys anchor as some how it became fouled.
Finally come across the end of the pipe that runs from the single point mooring to the jetty.

The Dump 30 Jan 21

Today I had a great dive with Dong and Vicki. The forecast was for less than ideal conditions with a large tide which means there would be a strong current and also for winds around 18kts. We left O’Sullivan Beach Boat Ramp about 11am and soon after arrived at the Dump. The wind had started to pick up and the odd white cap started to appear.

We had timed our dive to be at the dive site at the bottom of the tide to avoid the current. Once in the water there was very little water movement and as we descended the Vis was very good just a small amount of residual sediment from the tide.

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.

Hallett Cove

 
Christmas eve dive at the North end of Hallett Cove. The reef system is part of Seacliff Reef with a ledge running parallel to the shoreline.
Whiskey and Dong were looking for crabs but there was not very many to be found. I managed several photos of a Blue Devil otherwise there was only the local Bulls Eyes and a number of Leather Jackets.
Whiskey did miss an anchor so it remains on the bottom for another day
Water temp was 20c and vis was excellent and out to 10 meters.

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.
