Jen joined Wayne and I on this dive at The Pinnacle off Port Kembla on
November 24. We had not dive this site before and had only just
got the GPS co-ordinates.
It is an easy site to find with a bottom finder. The sandy bottom is close to 30m and the top of the Pinnacle at under 20m. Where we anchored there is a small cave in an alcove of the wall, with the wall going away in both directions. First thing we saw was a huge bull ray who had lost the stinger from his tail. He was lying at the entrance to the cave. We moved away after checking him out and over to a large boulder only a few metres from the cave. There is a lot of growth here. Then we headed a bit south and hit a thermocline and it got cold very quickly. Jen as getting cold and the viz was not great, but this is a great dive site to explore further. As we prepared to ascend a group of divers from United Divers ascended. Our last encounter with the bullray and Wayne got a bit close it took flight vertically up the wall.
Very nice indeed
