Details: Our second dive in Point Addis Marine Park was off Ingoldsby Reef. This is a shallow site, but has some great terrain and amazing algae communities. A Giant Cuttlefish, put on a menacing display like i’ve never seen before… Contorting his tentacles to make himself look as grotesque and alien as i’d ever seen. He even started mimicing the swaying weed in an attempt to mesmerize me.

Details: The Point Addis Marine park beckoned again with great conditions for launching at Point Roadknight. First dive was on the back of Ingoldsby Reef where it starts to drop off. Lush lush algae communities and lots of fish around, but the structure was fairly uninteresting until one little overhang provided a small cave that was teaming with fish and provided a hang out for a cuttlefish. Loads of brightly coloured Horseshoe Leatherjackets around.

Details: I’ve been itching to get back to the Point Addis Marine Reserve…its got so much potential. The first dive was on the outer edge of Ingoldsby Reef. A lush shallow reef system that has a great diversity of algae. I encountered a crayfish just wandering around unprotected along the ground…only in a marine reserve! Towards the end of the dive i came across a piece of wreckage, presumably off the Inverlochy, although that is suppose to be on the shoreward side of the reef.
