Montague Island, Lady Darling

Friday, 7 November 2003 | link | tag | / Diving / Australia / NSW - South Coast
The Lady Darling is an old boiler ship, wrecked in 1888, and only found in 1998, its in pretty good condition. Plenty of life has grown up on it, but it must get a fair current over it, nothing very large is growing there.

Its home to few large snapper and wrasse.

As far as wrecks go, this wasn't that bad. I'm not a huge fan os rusting hunks of metal, but I enjoyed this dive, nonetheless.

The profile is near perfect for a deep dive. A full 5 minutes safety stop. The Computer briefly went into deco just before ascending while I was waiting for Phil to come back to the anchor.
