Diving Saturday 5th April 2008 ex Queenscliff
Dive Days Grrrr, Greg, Pam and David launched from Queenscliff after being thoroughly done over by the Water Police on Saturday morning. They were obviously trying everything possible to keep people from the dredger, but we had all the safety gear required.

Our primary dive was to be the slack flood tide at 2:16PM but the rip looked OK so we headed out to the Coogee. Eventually the depth sounder showed something so the buoy was dropped. The two Gregs dropped down into around 3 - 5 m visibility. Upon their return Pam and David repeated the dive. The buoy had been placed at the bow by Grrr so we headed along the wreck, running out a line as this was our first visit. Saw the boilers and made it to the stern where the fish life was abundant. With time running out we quickly returned to the buoy line and headed up. Had one almighty tangle of 60m of line as the reel had jammed!

We then headed inside the bay on the last of the incoming tide and enjoyed out hot dogs for lunch.

Grrr was aware that Tom was going to the Eliza Ramsden for slack water so we decided to join him and add the mark to our GPS. Grrr and Greg dropped in on slack and obviously enjoyed a great dive. Pam and David dropped in but with the current already turned we did a quick lap of the wreck to get a feel for it, then had a quick look inside at the middle and stern before heading up.

Overall a great day with two new sites for three of us. Thanks to Grrrr for introducing us to these sites, we will certainly return to explore them more thoroughly.
