Conditions: Deterioted

Visibilty: 5m

Water Temp: ??c

Bottom Time: 40minutes

Max Depth: 20m

Details: Its amazing how the same body of water can be so different just a few kms apart. I took Phil down near Black Rock to show him Pipeline Bommie and the water had gone from a clear blue at Ant Caves to a murky surgey green at Pipeline Bommie. Still a great little dive.

Conditions: ?

Visibilty: 10m

Water Temp: ??c

Bottom Time: 50minutes

Max Depth: 21m

Details: The terrain gets a little different down near Black Rock, and so do the fish species. A big school of Silver Warehou, a species I’ve never seen before, circled me closely. The usual Port Jackson shark hung out under the ledges and on the way there, Dolphins enjoyed the ride on the bough. Great dive.

Details: It was a great day, but the many search and rescue helicopters looking for the missing diver the day before added a bit of drama to the area, I didn’t want to come across a body so thought i’d drive down to Torquay in the boat and sound around Pt Danger looking for dive sites. I found 1 or 2 dropoffs, but had a ‘grass is greener’ mentality going on, and eventually ended up loosing the good dropoffs i did find. Conditions looked to be getting worse, so i ended up heading back and diving near black rock. I didn’t regret the decision one bit finding a great bommie that housed a family of 7 Port Jackson Sharks. It had some nice sponge growth on it too, and was just the perfect size to circumnavigate. One of the first ‘proper’ dive sites i’ve sounded out that will go on the regular dive list.
