Thursday 25 Jan 2019

Expecting extreme temperatures on Thursday seven members of the Sea Wolves Dive club decided to cool down with two excellent dives. The first was at the disused Single Point Mooring about two miles out of O’Sullivan Beach Boat Ramp.
Just before departure the wind picked up causing a small wind chop which made it very wet for those using the inflatable. As we prepared for the dive at the Single Point Mooring, surface conditions where a bit lumpy. However, once in the water conditions were excellent.  On the mooring at about 23 meters there was millions of fish in various sizes and several large schools. There was also a large Wobbegong Shark lying between two of the tanks. Several large blue swimmer crabs were seen and collected.
Once back on the surface the wind had dropped out completely and the sea was calm. This allowed for a comfortable ride to the second dive at the Dump. This site is several hundred meters north of what is left of the Port Stanvac Jetty.
Conditions were perfect at the dump. Very little current and good visibility made for a great dive. The water temp was around 23C and visibility at least 10 meters. All the pontoons were alive with fish. Swimming around the area schools of different fish came and investigated the divers.
There was also several anchors recovered whilst at the dump.
Unfortunately with air running low after nearly 80 minutes in the water we returned to the surface and then headed back to the boat.

Club Members dives last week

Over the past week there have been several dives. Firstly Whiskey, Thong, Alan and Grant went to the Dump and then the Sea Wolf / Lumb to dive. Conditions were excellent there was plenty of fish life at all sites with water temp around 220 and visibility out to 10 meters plus. Whiskey recovered two anchors from the dump and Thong got his knuckles smacked when he tried to get between Whiskey and his newly acquired anchor.  The Lumb is showing signs of age with the passageway almost completely collapsed but still providing shelter to local fish population.
 Whiskey Alan and Grant ventured to Aldinga Reef for a dive on the Drop Off. Along the way a pod of dolphins playing close to the surface were seen and a slight detour was made. The diving at the Drop Off was good with plenty of interesting swim throughs, holes and crevasses prior to arriving at the Drop Off. Once on the sandy area it was very easy to cause the silt to rise by fin kicks and the slight current was also stirring up the silt. Despite the poor visibility there was plenty of interesting fish and small critters to see. On the return to O’Sullivan Beach Grant was lost overboard when the duck was hit side on by a somewhat larger than normal wave. Eventually Grant was recovered and we all made it back to Whiskey’s house for a beer.
 Donghyun, Ash and family went for a dive at Port Noarlunga they made it out to marker 7. Along the way they saw crabs and plenty of fish in quiet clear water. However it was hot work getting to the water.
 Congratulations to Pat and Helen who have now completed their Cave Diving course. Their last dive was in Kilsby Sink Hole with crystal clear waters that are somewhat cooler than the ocean at the moment.
 Peter had a couple of dives while on holiday in Bali. He spent more time in travel than diving and had to change sites due to weather conditions. However the dives were good with warm water and good visibility.

Rapid Bay 3 Jan 2019

Thursday 3 January 2019 a small group of Sea Wolves head down to Rapid Bay for a cool down dive. Conditions were ideal with visibility of 15 Meters and water temp up to 20C. There was a slight current running however this did not affect the dive. There was plenty of fish life including Squid, Old Wife's and heaps of Leather Jackets and one crab was seen.

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.
