Conditions: ?

Visibilty: 4m

Water Temp: ??c

Bottom Time:50minutes

Max Depth: 4m

Details: A PhD student from Melbourne University contacted me about sites containing artifical reefs structures near natural reefs. She asked if i had dived the reef balls off the end of Portarlington Pier…this was the first i’d heard of them! So i decided to check them out. The vis was miserable, and the reef balls were fairly uninteresting. Not much seemed to be inhabiting them bar a few small crabs, a couple of blennies and small biscuit stars. I may have to check these out one day when the vis is better.
