After a wonderful dive on the Bombo we headed over to Pig Island, another of our favourite Port Kembla sites.  We dropped anchor in 15m, noting the boat 40m away with a hookah compressor running and no one on board.  We saw these divers once we were under, was strange to see them with no cylinder on their back (they did have a small bail out) and a hose running back up to the boat. 

The viz was fantastic, easy 20m.  And there was fish life galore.  Lots of bullseye in schools around the rocks, morays, cuttles and a devil fish to name a few.  Lovely gardens here, absolutely prolific with sea tulips.  The groper were quite friendly but unlike some of the Bare Island ones did not seem to expect to be fed (a good thing).  Towards the end of the dive we looked up to see a huge school of pomfrey.  There must have been thousands of them swimming together at 10m depth.  We swam around and through them and I took some great video.  I've never seen a school of these that big.

This site is so prolific with fish it compares well to the outer barrier reef.  A wonderful dive and again we wished we could stay longer.
