Eagle rays chilling at Point Walter night dive

written by Dane Fielder – Perth Scuba PADI Dive Master

We all showed up at Point Walter Reserve on Wednesday night 24/09/14 ready to go diving. After a photo and a dive brief we got our gear on and got ready to get in the water. We had a couple of Fluoro divers and a few more keen to go crabbing and prawning, so the Fluoro guys hung around the jetty while the rest of us went looking for prawns and crabs.

We made our deep water entry off the jetty and as soon as we made our descent we spotted a rope covered in seahorses and a crazy amount of crabs, ranging from babies to giant females. It was also a bit weedy so we decided to head out to look for a sandy bottom that the prawns love. On the way out I found a prawn net so once I had a couple in the net I passed it on to one of the new guys to have a go. After a bit of prawning we came across a patch of about eight eagle rays just chilling out in one little area.

 Shortly after we made out way back in to meet back up with the Fluro divers. This site has a large amount of seahorse and crabs if that’s what you’re after, and if you swim out a bit more you will find the prawns and stingrays.
