Dive Number: 566 06/03/2014 The Wall, Bowen Island, Jervis Bay


Visibilty: 20m

Water Temp: ??c

Bottom Time: 50minutes

Max Depth: 20m

Details: We headed up to Jervis Bay, and Grey Nurse Sharks were the target species. We took a charter out of Huskisson with Dive Jervis Bay a nice little shop within walking distance of the harbour and a great bakery over the road. I think this is the first dive boat i’ve been on with an all female crew, skipper included….not that there’s anything wrong with that. :)

We headed out to Bowen Island over a fairly choppy bay, but the island offered protection from the wind, and conditions were really good. The dive on “The Wall” of the island was pretty good with cuttlefish, Weedy Seadragon, and wobbegong (i think i even saw an Eastern Blue Devil deep under the ledge). This trip was all about the grey nurse though, so not seeing any left me a little underwhelmed, but i was promised the next dive at “The Nursery” would provide the goods.

Camera Details: Tokina 10-17mm 2 X YS-D1 Strobes
