Club Dives

Spring is finally here and the dive club had a busy weekend with a variety of dive activities planned.

Saturday morning saw us dive over at Whitireia Park with some new divers experiencing their first fun dive after completing their Open Water Course. The sun was shining as we entered in at the point and cruised along the reef back to the beach. Not a lot of marine life but then there were no skills either so the divers were happy. We think the first divers scared away the eagle rays and octopuses they saw!

Saturday night saw the dive group don their pyjamas at Shark Bay for the last night dive of the season. Heading in as the sun set the divers saw stargazers, several large Wellington Nudibranchs, sole, swimming crabs and a black pipefish. As the divers completed their dive and were getting dry Tomo turned up with fish & chips. A great way to finish the evening with friends & family.

Sunday morning and we were back at the Patent Slip for our monthly underwater clean up. As part of the year long Adopt a Dive Site program the club collects marine debris and sends the data to P{roject AWARE for analysis. We are still collecting large amounts of debris, mainly plastic and glass bottles, golf balls and a large number of plastic fishing reels. We collected over 330 items weighing 76kg.
