Details: There’s a reef marked on Navionics called Merlens Reef out of Point Lonsdale that i’d been meaning to check out. Conditions weren’t ideal and a strong current was running, so we didn’t make it out to the area that marked a drop off. An interesting dive all the same.

Air usage: 170bar/2500psi

Details: I’d never been out off the township of Pt Lonsdale. It was hard to get a park around this time of year, but i took what i could get and took the nearest stairwell. I ended up heading out from the small breakwater and then headed south east. Towards the end of the dive, i came across a wall teeming with fish life. Including a blue-lined leatherjacket. Nice little dive.
