East auzy current dive trip.

Post  liquidg on 5th January 2015, 6:47 am

Just after the recent clear waters, that these days in SEQ are very rare, the current that was placing clear waters out off and against the SEQ shore line moved in when the north easterly started back up.
This was just as well due the heavy rains subsequent run out from the estuaries dirtying the waters it now needed to take to cooler more plankton friendly waters which is south and out to sea to be processed.
We had very smooth seas with 26c to 25c water temps, 15 to 12 metres vis in close, further out it was 35metres and 27c.

Some storms around but none over us.

I was going to ask you about ritteri anemones. How common are they and how common are the green foot morph there? I saw one on a youtube video the other day and I want one now.
