Little Bay

Saturday, 18 January 2003 | link | tag | / Diving / Australia / NSW - Sydney
Last time I was at Little Bay I was a student and we stayed within the natural reef wall that crosses the mouth of the bay. I now know why. Once we crossed over into the ocean side of the wall, the current kicked in and tossed us around mercilessly.

We ended up on the completely wrong side of the bay, the right side when we were supposed to be diving the left.

Lots of work and diminishing air, bottom time was short. I was not enjoying myself.

Plenty of fish life around, though, and the odd giant cuttlefish. The current had died away and we were able to take full advantage of the amazing visibility for Sydney.

Thousands of fish and life once we got out in the bay a bit further, at abot 12 metres or so things picked up a bit.

Lots of nice rock ledges, holes and walls to explore.

Because the current was still around, the bottom time was dimished with extra work. Kevins air ran out quite quickly after we headed back and we had to snorkle quite a long way.

This was a much better dive though, Little Bay will be worth diving again.
