Wednesday 1st July – Ammo Jetty Night Dive
Not letting a little bit of rain put us off, we met in the car park to gear up for a night dive at Ammo Jetty.
We had a varied crew. A couple of seasoned locals, two fairly new divers and three recently qualified PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors.
I haven’t been out on a night dive for a long lime and I soon remembered how much I do love it. The underwater world comes alive at night and it gives you a completely different perspective on the dive site. Sandy bottoms that in the day are empty, in the night are peppered with crabs and shrimps. In your torch, the jellyfish shimmer and cuttlefish swim past your mask at close quarter.
We also saw quite a few other things including quite a large Stingray that had been hooked by one of the fishermen on the jetty overhead.
My buddy was kind enough to liberate it and it didn’t hang around after that. The other things we saw were Frog fish, lots of Starfish, a small Port Jackson Shark and a Rock Fish hiding in the soft corals on one of the pylons.
I can’t wait to go out again next week. The current plan is to go out from South Mole (Freemantle)…
