Underwater Festival Road Trip Day 10

Last Port of Call

the crew at Port Douglas

We couldn’t have asked for more beautiful surrounds for our the final day of our road trip than Port Douglas.

 

After a Top Gear drive along the coastal road to Port Douglas, the crew checked in with Quicksilver for our three-dive day trip on the ...

Information in

What I love about the WA fringe event is that it's not all about diving and taking photos.  There are opportunities for people to learn, to have useful information go in, which hopefully stays in, to help us take better photos.

Yesterday afternoon we had a repeat of Peter ...

The Great Ceninngan Wall

We finally got to a superb wall dive, Cenningan Wall on the South East Corner of the island. Emo has been trying to get us on here for the past few days but currents have been too strong. Lembongan has major current changes here and it is hard to plan ...

Underwater Festival Road Trip Day 9

'Why' is for Yongala

Disaster strikes again! The crew fails to make it out to the Yongala together after today's trip was cancelled because of 25-knot winds.

Kieren and Nick were gutted since they didn't get to dive the wreck yesterday. Kieren had hoped to get a few ...

The Great Divide

The crew was divided for the first time on the trip, with Seanna and Jason's names being drawn from the hat for the two spots left on today's Yongala trip.

That left Kieren and Nick to fend for themselves, but the resourceful outcasts found a ...

3 from a distance...And an awesome special spot

Well finally, we saw 3 Molas, but alas from a distance and they were at about 45-50 metres! We took the boat early to Crystal bay to avoid the masses. And we literally only just missed them. As we wer ascending from 30 metres, there were literally about 5 groups ...

A special "goodnight"

Three of us jumped into the cold silty water at Ammo Jetty last night to see what critters would show their faces.

Surprisingly, there were no fisherman on the jetty, quite an unusual sight for a wind-free evening.  It made our dive easier, not having to worry about getting hooked ...

No big stuff but an exhilirating drift dive!

Well today was not a day for photos. We did 3 dives, the first 2 hunting for big stuff but to no avail. I didnt realise how cold the water temp actually gets here...a very brisk 17 degrees. Lucky for the extra 3mm wetsuit and gloves.

The first 2 ...

Underwater Festival Road Trip Day 7

A slight change of plans

We had hoped to do a shore dive in Bundaberg today but after arriving at the dive shop to find the visibility was only one metre, we decided to get our day of driving done and go all the way to Ayr.

 

For the past ...

Seahorses in the snow

I joined the Perth Scuba night dive last night at the Rockingham wreck trail in the hope of getting some decent pics.  Conditions here have been less than ideal and whilst the swell has been dropping, it was still cold and windy.  I had no buddy so was very grateful ...
