Maccas reef 27-02-10


 Our second dive for the day was Maccas reef straight out of Bate Bay.  There was a strong current at the surface and we rigged 'helper lines' from the front of the boat to pull ourselves to the anchor rope.  And we needed them too.  The anchor was well secured and we headed to the edge of the reef.  At the bottom the current was running the opposite way to the surface.  A lone weedie sea dragon greeted us on our journey south.  After 10 mins or so we came to the south end of the reef.  We turned there and came back to the anchor.  There are lots of schooling fish here, the most prevalent being stripeys.  It is a nice dive site an well worth more exploring.
