Well some may have had their doubts as we set off from Sydney and the clouds started to form.

Friday morning and though overcast the weather was fine and a dive at low tide was planned. As we kitted up the clouds cleared and the sun came out - perfect. A fun dive was had by all, except Roy who's dry suit flooded.

Friday at dusk we jumped in for our second shore dive, the water was calm and the fish were going to bed, as we surfaced dolphins danced around the divers.

In the evening we had a well earned pizza in front of the massive plasma TV watching the rugby world cup.

Saturday we headed out to the wreck SS Bombo taken out by Pro Dive. A large swell but that did not deter us from getting down to that piece of metal at the bottom. 27m down and still a swell but what a great dive, worth waiting for, lots of fish life, shoals of cat fish, sleeping wobbegongs and hiding moray eels. Up on the surface the swell took its toll on the Chunder Wonder Boy...

In shelter of Cabbage Island a dive which included various bits of boats and garden statues, lots of baby port jacksons and rays

A well deserved drink and feed down the local bowling club to top the trip off.
