Gobbleguts, cardinals, cowfish and cuttlefish

written by Adam Booth – Perth Scuba PADI Divemaster

Well what can I say but it was an awesome day of diving this Sunday 30 November 2014 at Ammo Jetty.

The sun was out and so was the marine life as well as the diving community.

12 of us lucky people headed on down tot he dive site after a breaky of bacon rolls.

As it was a beautiful day out there was allot of people down at Ammo Jetty but after finding parking and gearing up we headed down to the beautiful flat water with a temp of around 22 degrees.

The vis was fairly good even after a heap of divers had already been in with the vis around 4m it made it for an enjoyable dive with plenty to see ( and I mean plenty).

There were large schools of Tarwhine, Weeping Toado and Southern Yellowtail Scad towards the beginning of the dive.

Along the way out to the end of the jetty we encountered Western Gobbleguts, Western Striped Cardinal Fish, male and female Shaw’s Cowfish and Western Smooth Boxfish.

Once we got to the end of the jetty we found a large Bighead Gurnard perch, Stripeys, Western Australian Seahorses, a couple of hermit crabs and even a cuttlefish.

This was a fantastic dive and when it’s at its prime a awesome dive site. I cant wait to do more diving over the summer at this great site.

Next week weather permitting we are headed to Point Peron and if we are lucky enough might even be buzzed by a few Dolphins.
