Manta Club dive at Robb Jetty – great visibility and a huge Samson fish

Manta Club dive at Robb Jetty – great visibility and a huge Samson fish

Divers at Robb Jetty

This Sunday morning was excellent, with almost no wind and perfect 23C in the air, and near 20C in the water at Robb Jetty. At the pre-dive barbeque, tasty sausages were quite popular with divers of all certification levels, 15 of them, from OW to Perth Scuba’s new Divemaster Candidates now progressing through their courses.

Fifteen divers made it to the secluded carpark  in Robb Road, from where a medium-range walk across the dunes  brought us to this iconic dive site  – most will agree that Robb Jetty is an outstanding diving destination whenever the swells stay low for a few days in a row. 

We we quickly met with the  underwater “owners” of this submerged jetty: a huge Sambo (which looked like a giant Trevally quite a bit) in the beginning section (at near 4 meters of depth), and other creatures classified within the book  “Sea Fishes of Southern Australia”  throughout the length of  jetty. First the Sambo greeted the Perth Scuba veteran Club Divers (Mark and Forge), then myself and my buddy Alyssa (who spearheads and fast-tracks her diving experience and progress at almost every Club Dive now) – by way of marking this big fish’s territory, done by flying just over our heads. 

The general underwater lanscape was full of interesting marine life features, including the octopus, eagle ray, pink parrotfish, various morwong species, and talmas.  The visibility was 7-9 meters. Jellies were not present in large numbers. 

Everybody enjoyed visiting this dive site. Thanks divers for coming to this Manta Club dive! See you on next club dives soon.
