Great Keppel Island (Diving)

Thursday, 1 January 1970 | link | tag | / Diving / Australia / QLD - Great Barrier Reef
Started our diving trip. Andrew, Simon and Dan were doing the remainder of their Open Water PADI and I was coming along for the dives.

It took about an hour and a half to get over to the island from the Roslyn Bay marina, and we were in the water by lunch time.

The water wasn't the cleanest, but it was delightfully warm. We started with a reconasance snorkle before a shallow (4 metre) dive to get the guys used to their gear again.

After some lunch, we moved to another spot and did another dive with more skills this time. I basically hung around nearby taking photo's while masks were cleared, etc.

We anchored near Big Penisula, part of the Great Keppel Island, and did a spot of fishing before dinner. We caught a fair few fish, even caught a couple of keepers to have for dinner.

Finished the night off watching the amazing view of the stars while listening to the surf on the nearby beach - wonderful.
