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.

This was the first opportunity we have had to dive this site water temp has now reached 19c.
No dive would be complete without bagging out on anchors and  as usual we got our quota of anchors. Well any way we recovered two from the site, both had been caught under parts of the jetty structure.
The site has to be added to the must do list for dives in Adelaide.
