Majestic waters of Cockburn Sound

written by Brett Cook – Perth Scuba PADI DivemasterKwinana Grain Terminal 26Oct2014 by Brett Cook

Eleven divers headed to the Majestic Waters of Cockburn Sound…. for a shore dive at the Kwinana Grain Terminal this morning, Sunday 26 October 2014.

A fair bit of indecision by the weather today, made for a semi-dry assembly of our gear, as we prepared to enter the water. We had a good cross section of skills with Open Water, Advanced up to Instructor level. A couple of our younger divers returning from a recent trip to Fiji and some old faces also.

This sight is definitely one to “stop and smell the roses”, almost the slower you go, the more you see. A slight cross current and small waves at the surface until we dropped below the surface, to experience the abundant life under the jetty and blow some bubbles. Many of us found the cuttlefish and the large number of leatherjackets, Nudibranchs however were quite elusive today and only a couple of the resident orange ones were seen. The same to be said for octopus, with only one diver then bragging he saw two!

The number of blowies living on the jetty, must be at an all-time high at present and so friendly too.

Visibility was great at approximately 7m, with some sunlight filtering through the clouds enhancing the life below.

Pretty easy and nice dive today and looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday for the night dive.
