With sunny skies and flat seas, Blairgowrie was looking to be another great dive. After buddy checks we walked down the pier to the lower landing. We entered with a giant stride and after weight checks and adjustments we headed out under the pier. There has been a lot of dredging lately and the sand has been dumped under the wall to improve the breakwater, unfortunately this doesn’t improve the diving. I am sure the scenery will improve over the coming weeks as the water continues to get warmer. After completing the required skills, we found an iPhone and a snorkel in 4 metres. Swimming along the breakwater wall, we were treated to a giant Eagle Ray feasting on a crab. We also spotted Globe Fish, Cow Fish, numerous varieties of Leatherjackets, Pigmy Leatherjackets, Nudibranchs, baby Rays and a Pigmy Seahorse. We did two 45 minute dives here today without hoods, the water was 16 deg C and visibility was 10 metres. After the dives we went to the Blairgowrie Café for lunch and to complete log books and paper work.
Congratulations Craig on becoming a PADI Open Water Diver and welcome to the world of underwater adventure.
