Following on from the success of our night dive at Robert’s Point, we are going to do Wednesday night channel dive! This dive will be an exploratory dive to Kinghorne Point in the D’Entrecasteaux Channel. This is just south of Robert’s Point (where we went last time) by about 5 or 10 minutes or so.
Meet at the Dive Shed to kit up the boat at 4.30PM , to head down to Dru Point, Margate to launch the boat. We will shoot down the Channel (20 minute boat ride) and do one quick dive each after we sound out where is good to drop in on.
This is a dusk/night dive, so Advanced Open Waters only sorry team! Ideally recent night dive experience and at least 10 temperate water dives logged. Bring your torches SMBs/ Safety Sausages are mandatory on this dive. These can be provided at no cost by the club, but you must carry one.
This dive is exploratory, but according to Navionics it will be about 5m to 15m. Hoping it matches the stunning beauty of the huge colourful finger sponges, small corals, large schools of fish and exciting invertebrates that Robert’s Point produced for us recently.
Get in touch with your friendly Dive Officers Andrew and Bridge if you have any questions 🙂
