Double header – 4pm we’ll meet at Dunalley for a drift dive through the canal. The dive is short enough that we’ll then use the tanks for a quick night dive at the Pirates bay jetty.
You can join for either or both. We’ll be camping at Taranna Fri/Sat for anyone keen to join us.
The current flow through the canal makes it an ideal habitat for many filter-feeding invertebrates including colourful sponges and soft corals.
Due to this current flow an exact start time will be given closer to the date depending on tides.
We will be starting 30m west of Dunalley Bridge we will drift East down the canal to Blackman Bay. Exit the water at the boat ramp on the left (accessible by car). This is a shallow dive, starting at 8m and ascending to 5m.
Most importantly, will have fish and chips afterwards.
Meet at the Canal.
Anyone unwell must not attending club events.
Club dive gear to be washed with approve solution at the end of dive.
Hand sanitiser will be available at the dive.
Please maintain social distancing of 1.5m wherever possible during the event.
