We arrived early around 08:30hrs to find Rob waiting in his black sunfire for us. I kitted up and entered the water to relax a little bit as I brought my large 17L tank and wait for Chuck to arrive and kit up. The first thing I noticed about this particular area was that the visibility was significantly better than it has been in many moons. I could see so much further than ever before. Chuck arrived and kitted up as I was looking at the large amount of rubbish. Shopping trolleys, discarded bicycles, machine parts, photocopier parts, oil drums. There is so much rubbish here.
Chuck arrived on the bottom around 09:00hrs and we began our dive in this great visibility. We could see a lot of fish where before there weren’t that many.
We swam around the bridge in awe of the rubbish and debris deposited here. Chuck managed to find himself another bowling ball!
It was an interesting dive with a lot to see. This is a great spot.
