Octopus hide in pipes at Robb Jetty

written by Adam Booth – Perth Scuba PADI Divemaster

Perth Scuba Manta Club Dive Robb Jetty 16Nov2014-2

It was a glorious day this Sunday 16 November 2014 and the water conditions were even better for a dive, this weeks adventure took us to Robb Jetty( my fav site!!!).

After a chow down of snags and a dive brief we headed down to a busy Robbs Jetty. After having to park in the reserve parking we kitted up and made the fun over the mountain trek down to the beach. Greeting us was nice calm water around 21 degrees.

After the group photo we headed on in and after a short swim we dropped down on this great site.

As always the fish life here is amazing and are never shy of divers, with most coming up to check you out and even some who like to follow you around saying hello when ever they get the chance, this site really is a photographers paradise.

For the lucky 12 that came along we were privileged to be able to see large groups of cardinal fish, goggle guts, goat fish, bulls eyes, sweeps, box fish and there was even an octopus hiding inside one of the pipes.

We even came across a large school of Morwongs (around 14) hanging in a group in almost a trace looking up at the sun on the surface, it was interesting to see and they didn’t mind if anyone got close.

This really is a fantastic site and always delivers on a great dive, yes the only down side is that mountain of sand at the start and finish of the dive but it is well worth it, and with the dive weather only getting better and better now that the summery conditions have finally come to Perth, this site is going to get even better still.

Come join us on a club dive, we meet every Sunday 8:30am at the shop and the best bit about it is it’s free and we will even give you breaky.

This Sundays dive will take us to North Mole in search of the Gareenup, a 22m barge lying in 8-10m of water.

Hope to see you all them.
