UWE has been back on the Sunshine Coast for the month of October, diving with the old crew. Sarah, Rob, Nancy, Paul, Jeremy, Bruno and Sam. We have been out at the all time favorite shore site, yes you got it Tuwanek. We have been treated to the Giant Pacific Octopus, and Wolf Eel’s, all the fabulous marine life that Tuwanek has to offer, and as always the visibility was 100 ft plus!! Temperatures are dropping that is for sure, but great diving never the less!
We also made it out on the zodiac for a days worth of diving. We picked two dive sites which we/I had never dived before. The first site, is one I had wanted to try on a few occasions but never really made it in there. I can not remember the name of the place, but it was the rocks just down from Pipers Point, it had some very interesting areas, we even ran into two Giant Pacific Octopods, one that appeared to have died very recently, then the second in the same den which was still alive. The topography was amazing. Then the second dive site was 9 mile point, but we went in around the corner, where normally the divers are exiting at so it was a new area for us. Once again the wall was amazing topography wise, and it had plenty of depth. The one group of divers had indicated that they had seen an octopus, around 80 – 90 foot, but the group I was with did not.
Overall it was fabulous diving the inlet again, as well as diving with my old friends, and meeting some new people….thank you to all who made the dives so wonderful!
