Two trips in one day!

One of our clubbies went with a mate down the coast to practise some deeper snorkelling collecting and a couple others went out by boat to find a plane wreck from 1947.

The coast was awsome that was the wording from Nick on the coast, sounds great for some experience; clear water to by the sounds of it,better than out wide.

The trip out in the boat was very fruitful as well, the main part of the plane was found, but in a dive at around 80 feet,we had a bronz whaler and a white pointer make it a little to interesting to dive on tank that day so a nice easy snorkel at the rufus king wreck on the way back found no crays this time but a couple of nice fish to chase and a anemone crab from a lone bubble anemone with a lat in it as well.

Hopefully it will have something else nice in it next time we go there.

The gps marks for the part of the planes main body we found were kept so that we can park straight over it next time and hopefully get a video of it,the camera used is not safe to that depth so,it might work?

The fish life there was rediculas,a lot of banner fish on the well known wheel and wing,more than i have seen before,even what you would see on diving specials on tv.

The video is only safe to 3 metres but it works at 40 feet so we will put a line to a float and start filming at 40 feet and just go down, hopefully it will work.

These are what was got all up for the aquariums from the wreck.

A cute little anemone crab (Neopetrollisthes ohshimai)

This lat was on it's own in the large bubble anemone at the wreck(amphiprion latezonatus)the anemone crab was under this anemone.

A nice little heraldi caught,top fish to have.

A large conspict was caught as well,by hand no less,weird fish as they get big,so quiet and relaxed,even in Marks tank,it would happily sit on your hand,well,maybe not happy to do it,maybe it is just very tolerant!

The pics of it and videos are in another thread still in the members section,it will be out of our forum soon,its a work in progress and work is a four letter word,lol.

I really want to hear more about this plane wreck,if that is what you have found,if no one has been on it,now that is very cool.
After you go out to look at it,i would like to read what you say about it and if there is video,thats great.
so what is the actual depth there and what sought of conditions would you be up agains't,personly wreck diving is the best diving to do.
cheers
