Boat: "Oceanic Explorer", Dive Victoria, Portsea.

Met up with Heather and Matt at Portsea. Original plan was to dive "The Plateau", but because of conditions and shipping the dive site became "Spot G" instead.

The boat was pretty full, and we had to wait a while for those coming off of other boats to get air fills. But eventually we were on our way to the dive site. Bob was concerned that the tide conditions might mean we'd get a limited slack water period and that there would be very strong currents either side of slack water.

Bob let us go in just a bit before slack water. The visibility wasn't great - about 5 metres - and it was surprising dark because of the overcast conditions above. It would have been better if I taken my main torch along instead of just my backup torch.

This was certainly a very spectactular dive site. Marine life everywhere with hardly any exposed rock to be seen. Overhangs and swim throughs and caves in the wall. It was a real experience exploring this delightful dive site.

Heather had done an earlier deep dive, so she called the dive as she approached her no decompression limit and we headed to the top of the wall to do our deep stop at 15 metres. Matt and Heather then deployed their SMBs and we started our ascent.

Once back at Portsea we had lunch together before heading back to The Scuba Doctor for air fills.
