Still, calm day, so Benita and I decided to try another dive at Flinders Pier. My second visit there.

Couldn't get my Suunto Vytec dive computer to pick up the cylinder pressure from the transmitter. Must read up that part of the Sunnto manual again.

Visibility was a heap better than the last time.

Saw plenty of Weedy Seadragons. Eventually came across a group of three of them out by the end of the pier. Spend most of the time just drifting with them and watching them feed.

A large Stingray joined us for a while. It seemed to like following Benita.

A medium sized Banjo Shark kept cruising by, totally unconcerned by us.

With the tide low, I had trouble trying to use the landing and ladders to exit, so I ended up swiming in to the shore.
