Manta Club dive at Woodman Pt View – great visibility up to 10m, many awesome seahorses, brain corals, schooling colourful fishes and a cuttlefish
Sunday 10 December 2023
This Sunday morning was excellent, and almost perfect weather and water conditions were seen at Woodman Point, following a night and morning of strong Easterly winds at 15-20 knots. This did well at clearing the water conditions near Woodman Point and in nearby areas. The visibility was great, between 6 – 10m, best on the south side of this famous groyne. Brain corals sat around their usual places, manly near the tip of groyne, where large schools of Talmas, stripeys, and other small fish (including snappers and trevally) were feeding. Very large seahorses were seen, as well as a Pineapple fish hiding in-between stones, and even a Blue Devil. The water temperature was perfect, at >23C, so all of the 22 divers in our group inspected this not often-visited dive site for full 50 mins. Some jellies were present, but didn't bite.
Divers of almost all different experience levels were present, from Open Water Divers to the DM; many new OW divers joined our group today, and everybody enjoyed exploring this dive site. Thanks everyone for coming to this Manta Club dive! See you on next Manta Club events soon.
