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

Wolf attempt to beach launch

Wolf and Pace travelled to Cape Jaffa on Saturday afternoon to go out diving Sunday. While checking out their launch spot on the beach Wolf received a big surprise when somebody had taken away the sand that had been their the previous week. Coming over the rise and not being able to see the void Wolf drove straight over the edge. Fortunatly the Amrok sustained little damage.
However on Sunday Wolf found a path that lead to the beach without the leap of faith and was able to launch the boat with no problems. They made several dives and went through 5 tanks of air but bagged out with good size crays.


16 Nov 18 Lumb and Seawolve

On Friday members of the Seawolf dive club Whiskey, Alan, Dong and his friend Ash meet up to go for a dive on the Lumb and Seawolf.
Departing O’Sullivan Beach Boat Ramp the wind had just started to pick up causing a few white caps.
Once on site we quickly kitted up and started the dive. Alan and Ash where fist down and headed off to the Lumb as it was only a few meters away from the anchor. After a circuit of the Lumb they were joined by Whiskey and Dong and as a group headed over to the Seawolf.
Most of the dive was spent on and around the Seawolf entering the compartment and swimming through the ship whilst exploring the nooks and crannies inside the vessel. Upon entry we were greeted by a school of bulls’ eyes although there wasn’t much other fish life inside the vessel at that time.
There was not a large number of fish in the area either just the few locals like the magpie perches, puffer fish and strongies and some other small critters.
Visibility was good and the sea has warmed to 18c.
Returning to the surface the wind had picked up so the journey in was quiet wet. A passing dolphin swam by and said hello on the way back to the boat ramp.

Sat 10 Nov 18 The Dump

Saturday morning went for a dive at the dump. Only recovered one anchor.
All the land marks have gone so had a rough idea as to where to anchor but not which way to swim as we did not see any rises on the echo sounder.
If we had set of in the right direction we would have found the Dump almost immediately however swam away from the area at first.
However spent about thirty minutes on the pontoons all up a very relaxing and enjoyable dive.
First  shots is of the recoved anchor and the rest on one of the pontoons.
