After lunch at Point Lonsdale we were keen to dive on Awesome Reef. We called up the lighthouse for a shipping report. Because of expected shipping inwards and outwards around the slack water period, we decided to move our dive westwards away from the shipping channel.

We geared up and went in, with your truly carrying the pick on the end of the safety line.

As always in this drift area, there were lots of undercuts, interesting soft coral and facinating marine life. Came across one rather large stingray, plus a medium sized one.

I collected a couple of old bottles along the way.

Conditions were even better when we surfaced.

We headed up to South Channel Fort to catch up with Alan Beckhurst and again also caught up with Tom Wende.

We then headed back into Sorrento. Once we'd retrieved the boats and changed we all headed off to the Sorrento Pub for some chat.

Then I headed on to The Scuba Doctor for air fills. Left my 15 litre cylinder there for testing and oxygen cleaning.
