Details: For some reason i was hanging out to dive Cunningham Pier. Conditions weren’t ideal with some drizzle the days before and a huge storm water that drain geelong city right next to the pier. So i wasn’t expecting much and thats what i got. Its about 3 metres under the pier itself and then drops down into abou 10m dredged channels either side of the pier.  Theres something creepy about diving in dregded channels. I started heading down into the channel, but chickened out going all the way to the bottom coz it was just downright  freaky. I decided to check out the area in between the pier and the carosel and found a couple of old wooden pylons out off the end of moorabool st proper.  I found them in about 3m, but couldn’t  find them as they extended out into  the deeper 6-7m water. If  i’m feeling sadistic in summer i’ll dive cunningham pier again, and it might be worth a fossick to find some trinkets  some drunken NYE’s  lost after vommiting ove r the side, but i definently wont be rushing back.       

Camera Details: Canon 17-40mm , dual SS200 strobes
