Date: 12th November 2016

Conditions:

Visibilty: 9m

Water Temp: ??c

Bottom Time: 80minutes

Max Depth: 7m

Details: Despite wintery conditions in November, the swell was looking low, and while on a camping trip at Princetown, i thought i’d drop in to the Jetty at Port Campbell for a splash. Conditions were really good with nice clear water and low surge. Although not the most interesting structure, under the peir presented some nice vistas with anemone covered stumps, and schools of Bastard Trumpeter swimming around. The heavens opened while i was under the water and seeing the heavy rain against the surface of the water was an interesting perspective. you could see the nutrients from the land slowly settling in from the surface and a thermocline starting to form. I headed out from the pier in search of a wreck that apparently was out in the harbour. I found some old bits and pieces, but i suspect the main hull formation of the wreck is out there somewhere. All in all an interesting dive.
