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.

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.

Port Noarlunga Tire Reef 29 Nov 2018

This morning, two boats from the Seawolf Dive Club set out from O’Sullivan Beach Boat Ramp to dive the Port Noarlunga Tire Reef.
The intrepid divers were Whiskey, Fingers, Dong, Ash and Alan. (The A Team)
The journey out was a little bit bumpy as there was a wind chop coming from the south west. This also made kitting up a bit of a challenge.
Once in the water it quickly became obvious that the conditions were not the best. Visibility was down to a few meters as there was still a lot of silt in the water; the silt is a result of the storm which hit last week.
As the first couple of photos show conditions were not the best with and at a few meters you could just make out your dive buddy.
Despite the not so good conditions there was plenty of fish and lots of interesting flora to be seen.
As always no dive with Whiskey would be complete without recovering an anchor and this dive was no exception
