Dive HMAS Brisbane Report 26th June - 2nd July 2009
Beautiful flat seas are very welcomed after the tremendous seas that have been pounding the Sunshine Coast on and off for the past few months. The rain has been welcomed, I’m sure, and it’s great to have those dam levels up where they are but all of this has had an impact on the dive conditions. In spite of this, we have had some great dives lately and some very happy customers. The marine life is still exceptional and it’s great to see the hard and soft corals gaining strength and size on the HMAS BRISBANE.
Once again, wear a spay jacket or similar over your wetsuit for the trip out to the dive site, while on the surface interval and for the trip back to port, and you’ll enjoy the best of winter diving.
P.S. A wetsuit vest and/or hood is also a great investment for this time of year. We also have reusable heat packs in stock. Our staff trialed them last winter and found them to be a get asset in helping to keep warm.
Dive HMAS Brisbane Report update 11th - 18th June 2009
The beautiful winter weather that we so often talk about and look forward to, is here. Flat seas, gentle south westerly winds and the water is clearing up nicely after all the bad weather that we’ve endured for the past 3 months.
Water temp is on 20C and the visibility on the HMAS BRISBANE has got up to 15 metres. It’s been 10-12 metres in most places and a little less right down on the sand at the stern. The marine like is just going off out on the ship though. There are so many species and we’re starting to hear the whales as they head north on their annual migration.
Viz out on the Gneerings has varied also but is hovering around the 10-12 metre mark and should improve over the next few days.
Get into winter diving. Bring a beanie and a jacket to throw over your wetsuit after the dive and you’ll be good as. Dive Safe.
Dive HMAS Brisbane Report update 4th - 11th June 2009
The last 3 months have dished up some unsavory weather for divers. There have been glimmers of hope here and there and we’ve managed to get out diving quite a bit over that period. It all makes it worthwhile when you receive an email as we did yesterday.
A diver who travelled here from northern NSW on the weekend commented on what a great time he had and how well he had been looked after. Although the visibility was less than perfect it proves that you can still have a great dive if you approach it with the right attitude.
This weekend looks like being a pearler with very light winds from the southwest and virtually no swell. This will be a welcome change from some of the previous weeks. With a group of divers from Melbourne and another group from Sydney visiting this weekend, it will be great for them to see some flat seas.
Marine life on the HMAS BRISBANE has been spectacular to say the least. I guess this is one of the advantages of venturing out for a dive when the visibility is not perfect, you do find that the marine life is out and about. Many different varieties of fish have been seen along with the resident Grouper, Guitar Shark, Leopard Shark, Bull Rays, Eagle Rays, Octopus, Anemones and others. Water Temp: 21C. Viz: Saturday 30th May was 5 metres.
