Yanchep Lagoon Club Dive

Feb ’12

8:00 am
Yanchep LagoonJoin Lindsay our Dive Master extraordinaire at Yanchep Dog Beach (location changed!) this Sunday at 8am for a FREE shore dive.

This is your opportunity to get CRAYFISH from the shore, so don’t miss out!!!

This is a fair weather shore dive touted for crays towards the outer edge but not on th…e outer edge of the reef. The sea will be calm Friday & Saturday so we should get good viz!

Turn onto Lagoon Drive from Marmion Avenue and then right onto Brazier Road. Follow the road around until you get to a small lay by just before Leonard Way opposite the bus shelter.

Entry is easy via a 180m track (gear up in the car park). There are two options; a short swim over very shallow reef to the North to 4m marked above, or a longer track which is about 550m out to the outside of the outer reef which maxes out at 10m.If you do this track travel South along the reef for 200m (make sure you penetrate the reef occasionally to make the most of it), then swim 550m back.
The geology is limestone and there is plenty to see including; sea urchins, anemones, turban shells, sea stars, octopus, prawns, cray fish, cuttlefish, blue devils and ox eyes, juvenile pink snapper, hard and soft corals, nudibranchs and even lionfish! Take a torch for the overhanging ledges and move the kelp out of the way to peer underneath – Wear gloves! Caves, such as they are, are tight. Be careful of overhead environments.

We’ll be meeting at the dive site this week – so make sure you get your air fills and gear on Saturday afternoon!!!

Look forward to seeing you all there :D
