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 private boat ramp on the left (accessible by car). This is a shallow dive, starting at 8m and ascending to 5m.
$15 for dive, bcd, tank and regs
$10 for dive with tanks only
Most importantly, will have fish and chips afterwards.
Meet at the Canal or we can organise a carpool from the Dive Shed (leaving around 11.30)
Hoping to be in the water for the Flood Tide which should happen around 1.15 PM
