Scuba diving, free diving and low tide walks in South East Queensland for June /July

Post  liquidg on 8th July 2015, 11:14 am

For June and July so far the vis has been low on average and the temperature has varied from some days at 23c down to 19c and back up, it's all over the place depending how strong and how close in the east auzy current has gotten to the shore line.
It brings warmer temps and very soon the first south to north burst of currents happens and that makes it much colder and brings with it white pointers and larvae/juveniles of fish such as conspicillatus and extra latezonatus amphiprions, to name just two southerners heading our way.

On average we have had very calm seas, with some days almost spectacular in their quality!

There has been hideous current days where there is white water around us as we move into the water, “we know how to accurately predict the currents now”, to dead still days where it so good where you feel that something has to go wrong it is too good!

These pics are from Danny’s and my cameras of our free and scuba dive trips and low ride walks with Dave and who ever else can fit.

A nice fine start to this day out in the water.
