Details: A new marina is under construction at Portarlington, to accommodate the new Ferry to Melbourne. A huge breakwall has been constructed to contain the marina, with only a small entrance now to the new harbour. I thought i’d snorkel the new arm of the pier where the new ferry terminal will be, then swim over to the breakwall. To be honest, it was a fairly uninteresting dive, with very little growth and marine life inhabiting the new structures. The breakwall will provide some interesting little caves, and overhangs for marine life to inhabit over time, but the kelp needs to establish itself first, and that hasn’t happened yet. Apart from a couple of Nudibranchs on the rocks, there really wasn’t a lot around.

Camera Details: Canon 100mm, 2 X YS-D1 Strobes
