Deep 30m Plus
There was no wind, but the surf had picked up as we launched on Saturday morning from Jeffreys Bay main beach for our double tank dives to Geelbek Rock and Little Chelsea reefs. A warm 18 degrees at the surface was quite a surprise but due to a layer on 10m deep our viz was greatly reduced at the bottom. Tommy completed his PADI Advanced diver course by completing his Deep Dive.
Most of us have been out of the water a week or two (or three), and by the end of last week, we were pretty desperate for a dive. We were planning to do a night dive for the past week, but when the evening came, there was too much of a North East and the ocean was not very inviting. Especially for the launch from the main beach. After a group huddle, we decided to dive the Marina Martinique, just to see what´s really going down beneath the surface!
As we launched for our double tank dives on Saturday morning the water was a light brown colour due to all the rivers and streams running into the ocean after the rains we had. No one thought we would have any viz during our dives as we headed out to a new site called Pramberg Reef.
