Manta Club dive at Woodman Pt View – good visibility up to 5m, awesome seahorses, brain corals, and huge schools of Talmas
Sunday 19 February 2023
This Sunday morning was quite sunny, and almost perfect weather and water conditions were seen at Woodman Point. The visibility was good, near 3 – 5m. Brain corals sat around their usual places, manly near the tip of groyne, where large schools of Talmas, stripeys, and other small fish were feeding. Very large seahorses were seen (some even were reported reproducting), as well as some large schools of small catfish and larger Talmas were seen. The water temperature was perfect, still at 24C, so 29 of divers in our group inspected this not often-visited dive site for full 50 mins. Jellies were not reported.
Divers of almost all possible different experience levels were present, from Open Water Divers to the Rescuers, and even an an MSDT with nearly 2000 logged dives; many new OW divers joined our group today, and everybody enjoyed exploring this dive site. Perth Scuba's new Divemaster trainee Rosalie did exceptionally well at preparing the large group of divers to experience this special dive site, and also looked after some diver groups underwater. Thanks everyone for coming to this Manta Club dive! See you on next Manta Club events soon.
