Dive Number: 564 05/03/2014 Bawley Point
Water Temp: ??c
Bottom Time: 70minutes
Max Depth: 12m
Details: We stayed the night in Ulladulla, and i was considering the Lighthouse Reef for today’s dive. The conditions did look great, but the big stair climb and swim wasn’t all that appealing. Ended up driving back down south to Bawley Point and wasn’t disappointed with the decision. This was a great critter dive! The terrain is fairly uninteresting with a generally sandy bottom along the edge of the sloping rocky point that descends gradually into the water, however there are all sorts of critters to keep you occupied. Cuttlefish, Crested Horn Sharks, scorpion-fish, octopus, schools of trevally, Bat Rays and Smooth Rays, and right at the end of the dive…an Estuary Catfish(Cnidoglanis macrocephalus)! This seemed so out of place in the ocean..it was a surreal encounter. Great dive!
Camera Details: Tokina 10-17mm 2 X YS-D1 Strobes
