2nd dive on the inaugural dive day of the Bass Strait Aquatic Club.

Dave Kelly headed off after the first dive, and Simon Wilson joined us. George came along as deck crew.

We arrived at the site and Adi Costello and I went in after the others and descended down the line, out to the wall and down the wall to about 35 msw.

There were very large fish everywhere. The deep crevices in the wall were simply fascinating.

Adi found two large crayfish, just out of reach, in one of the crevices. As my air and no deco time lowered I started to work higher up the wall. There was just as much to see at these depths.

Eventually I signalled to Adi that I needed to ascend. I should have bought along the pony bottle on this dive so as to be able to stay down a bit longer. Adi deployed her SMB and we headed up together.

The variety and attractiveness of the dive sites in Victoria never ceases to amaze me.

After a quick trip back to Portsea Pier, we all got out of our gear and headed off to Portsea Pub for a drink. Adi was able to again show us some of the great pics and video she had managed to capture.

Neil and I headed into Rye to shop for some snags, nibbles and refreshments for the Bass Strait Aquatic Club Meeting at The Scuba Doctor.

At 4 pm we had a committee meeting. At 5:30 pm we started the club meeting. There was a good number of people in attendance. Some were already BSAC members and others looking to join and cross over.

Another great day of winter diving and plenty of great people to share it with.
