The big boat was out of commission last weekend as it was off getting its trailer welded up. Just the same, Brendan took a team up to the east coast for a dive / camp-out and he reports as follows:
“We had a camp out on Friday night, 10 Dec and the weather was excellent, not very cold. Dives were done on Inchcape and Hole in the wall, with lots of marine life with mighty shoals of snapper, huge morays, and lion fish. Two separate boats came to the Inchcape but were reluctant to tie up, and after waiting a while came alongside to find out how long we were going to stay, to which I replied the second wave was pending and they were welcome to tie up and dive from our line, but they cited "special training" and then they left. Glad they did, as we don't want our divers to be shot in the water ;-)
On the conditions - surface current was a bit strong, about 10 meters visibility, flat calm sea conditions and water temperature at 24 degrees without any thermoclines. Also found the swim-through at Hole in the wall which is very nice.”
