Dive Number: 93 22/10/2010 11.44 Little River

Wind: 25knot northerlies.

Tide:  NA

Conditions:  Strong hot northerlies that didn’t imapct the water deep in the creek gully. Some slight movement on the surface and there was some strange ‘gunk’ floating on the surface..not very appealing.

Visibilty: 6m

Water Temp: 16c

Bottom Time: 47 minutes

Max Depth: 4.6m

Air usage: 70bar/1000psi

SAC: ???? litres/min

Details:  I was on my way home from Melbourne and really wanted to get back into Little River with the wide-angle lens on.  The eerie scenes of the old torana wreck and the kayak through the green water begged for the wide angle. It was much more difficult to shot that i thought, but i’m happy with a couple of shots.     

Camera Details: Tokina 10-17mm , dual SS200 strobes

Air usage: 75bar/1000psi

Details:  I felt like a change to the normal dive sites, so on my way back from Melbourne, i popped into Little River where i remember reading about a fresh water hole on little river itself. I found it without much trouble, and Chris and Kerry joined me for a relaxing fresh water explore. It was a slightly creepy dive, with an ominous green hue to the water, but it was fun dive to check out..and my first fresh water dive, which was interesting to see the effect on bouyancy.  

Camera Details: Canon 100mm , single SS200 strobe .

Dive Report: Macro wasn’t the best choice for this dive. Theres an old torana wreck and sunked cano here, plus some nice surface shots and river vegetation opportunities that i’ll have to revisit with my wide angle. Not much life around. Chris saw a small eel, and i saw a small crab and a tiny red bug…anyone have any idea what type of critter this is? Its carapace was almost sponge-like.
