Reef Report for Saturday, October 14, 2000

Festival Fever!

Itís been a busy week with Reef Festival activities happening everywhere. We hope youíve had a chance to celebrate the festival and participate in its events! Donít forget the Hook, Wine and Sinker event and if youíve had the chance to get to the Hose Down and Pool Party, Iím sure you had a blast as I did. © Great Barrier Reef Enterprises

This week has seen the return of sunny conditions. Visibility on most reefs has averaged 12-15 metres, with winds blowing 15-20 knots. Brad on the Coral Reeftel reported high adventures on Briggs Reef as Richard, Mauritz, Brad, and Sammy, together with some of the passengers, saw three large octopuses spawning. The creatures frolicked near the divers for nearly an hour, finally forcing the divers to leave due to the whirlwind of air fanning out from their dancing tentacles.

The water temperature went up to 26C. Guests and crew on all vessels are enjoying the warming conditions immensely. Winds should ease a little for the weekend and blow southeast to northeasterly at 15 knots. A few scattered showers are predicted by Sunday.

(C) Pro Dive Cairns The weekly reef report is written by Sue-Anne Chapman of Pro Dive Cairns, who compiles them from the many conversations she has with divers, dive instructors, captains, and others in the Cairns dive community. The report is published weekly in the Cairn Post, the local daily paper and appears here thanks to the courtesy of Pro Dive Cairns.
