 Nelson Bay

25-27 September 2010 

Coordinator: Michael Walker 

The original trip notice has been archived so that future trip organisers can copy and plagiarise it with impunity.

For the first time in a while, the Nelson Bay weather was glorious. Not a hint of rain, 27 degree days, and virtually no wind.

The shore dives inside the bay were excellent as usual. The Halifax Park dive site has changed dramatically since the Club's last visit in March 2010. Instead of a rock entry, it is now a 5m stroll over a white sandy beach, which extends down to the 5m depth contour. The probable cause of the inundation was a concrete wall put in to stop sand from covering the boatramp that is about 500m away, combined with some storms over winter. The wall has since been removed, but the sand remains. Despite this, Halifax is still a great dive once you get down below 10m.

There were sightings of Anglerfish, Pineapplefish, Seahorses, Frogfish, and the usual plethora of nudibranchs.

Steve and Kim have provided some photos.
