Dive Number: 145 12/03/11  9.16, Point Danger, Torquay

Wind:   10 knot N’s

Tide:  2hours before 0.23 low tide at the heads.

Conditions:  It was close to low tide and waves were breaking over the point. They were only small, but enough to churn up the sandy bottom and make surge annoying, and also made it difficult to get out.  It was generally a fine day, but perhaps the northerlies weren’t strong enough to totally flatten  out the water. The evening before were southerlies too, so the northerlies impact were broken up.


Water Temp: 18c

Bottom Time: 22minutes

Max Depth: 6.3m

Air usage: 35bar/500psi

SAC: ???? litres/min

Details:    Another bad air day god dammit. I’ve been assured by the owner it should be sorted out now. I intended to dive with Phil, Sandy, Hui and Trev for a dive here…it ended up me just flapping around on the surface  concerned about my air again. The conditions weren’t great so i didn’t miss a whole lot, but still would have loved to  explore more of this site.   Seom of Trev’s photos can be seen here:             

Camera Details: Tokina 10-17mm , dual SS200 strobes
