Scuba Gods smile on the Kwinana Grain Terminal

The rainy weather throughout the week got me a little depressed, and I have to admit I wasn’t really looking forward to going diving on Sunday. Little did I realise that the scuba gods would smile on us and give us a beautiful, sunny morning to go and visit the Kwinana Grain Terminal.

When the six of us got to the site, the water was almost flat, with only a bit of chop from the wind. In the water, we experienced a chilly 17 degrees. Nudibranchs were out in force, as well as sea stars, schools of juvenile pufferfish and a couple of blue swimmer crabs that my buddy and I caught in flagrante. I can tell you that I wasn’t sure which hand signal to use for that one…

The highlight though, for me, was spotting a large octopus sitting in its hidey hole, watching me as much as I was watching it.
