Cape Gurnard on the SAS PMB wreck - false bay -

Pisces News: 18th December 2014

Happy festive times are here! With more and more visitors in the Cape, we’re adding a few extra boat launches in the coming days to be sure that everyone will find a place on the boat. And finally we’ll be enjoying some calm days for the weekend and into next week, a very welcome break from the strong southeaster that has been near relentless for months!


Dives this week have been relatively warm with 15C being the average surface temperature and many dives having thermoclines with bottom depths at 10C to 12C. The water has been green with poor visibility but life has been abundant! We’d definitely recommend climbing into a wetsuit this weekend and blowing some bubbles!
