Conditions:

Visibility: Night Dive

Water Temp: ??c

Bottom Time: 70minutes

Max Depth: 5m

Details: We headed back towards Victoria from Whyalla, and decided to stop over in Port Hughes which is apparently a great night dive, and a good spot for angler fish. Unfortunately an onshore wind picked up and it made for a very surgey dive. I can imagine it would be a very good dive, but with a macro lens on in the surgey conditions and cold water temperatures it was a less than am ideal night dive. We did spot a Sand Octopus, Wavy Grubfish, some Decorator crabs, Cowfish and pipefish, but no luck finding any anglerfish or Warty Prowfish.

Camera Details: Canon 60mm 2 X Inon z240 Strobes + YS-D1
