In perfect conditions, Jen Wayne and I head down to Port Kembla for some diving. The seas were forecast at 0.2m 17 secs apart and 5tkm/hr winds, fine and sunny. And it was pretty much that good.
This dive was to be a big test for Jen. She has suffered badly from sea sickness and no drugs or remedies to date had been successful As soon as the boat stops moving she started to feel sea sick. She has now had 4 sessions of hypnotherapy for this affliction and we were hopeful for a positive outcome.
We chose to dive Pig Island Sth first as Jen has not dived there before and if she were to start to feel unwell at least she should get to dive this very fishy site. All was good and not even a hint of uneasiness at any time.
The area was covered in fish, huge schools of them all around us. A wobbiegong was so well camouflaged that Jen nearly put her hand on it. It took fright and swam away very quickly. Further into the dive we found 2 damsel fish and nearby a large moray eel. Towards the end of our dive a cuttle came out to greet us. He was quite curious and hung around us, quite fearless. We got some nice pics of him before we had to surface.
Another great dive at one of the fishiest dive sites in this part of the coast.
