During Easter weekend the weather didn't play along and we only managed to do 2 launches in JBay. On Saturday the water temp dropped to between 11 and 9 degrees with about 2 to 3m viz. On the surface there were loads of activity with a few whales and dolphins, birds dropping like "kamakazi pilots" into the bait balls and our highlight was a huge sunfish at the surface.
On Sunday we sneaked in another launch although the westerly was blowing lightly. The rain that kept falling made it quite interesting for the 4 ladies on the boat who went along for the ride. Luckily Cobus brought 3 little flasks of "hanepoot" but by the time the divers surfaces they were all alomst finished thanks to Nellie!!
No one had a camera at hand so no pics this time, sorry. Thanks to Buks from ADG and Simon from the UK for their visit.
Rather late than never. Due to a crash in our systems and complete loss of all data we are somewhat behind with all our web site postings. Here are a few pics that Geo took while diving with us in Jbay.

After searching for a long time we found the caves opposite Kabeljous river. At 12 to 14m deep a nice long dive can be experienced on this reef. Due to it being in the bay viz is not always as great but there is so much fish life. The actual caves were found to be washouts under the reef in the gulleys. Loads of juvenile fish and big fish on this reef. A nice sized Raggie and other sharks were spotted here. The usual anemone etc also found here. Here are some pics...
Going where few divers has gone before...
With a couple of days left of 2011, Jeffreys Bay pulled out the most incredible holiday weather with prevailing calms seas, low winds and warm water. African Waters Scuba has been doing so many launches, that we struggle to keep track of it all. (We do have the indemnity forms and dive register for each dive so can check it if we need to!) The viz has been absolutaly incredible several days in a row.
