Reef Report for Wednesday, March 28, 2001
Sweetlips Survive Swells
Waters have been a bit lumpy on the reef this week. On Passions of Paradise, certified divers saw some Oriental Sweetlips in about eight metres of water under a coral ledge. They were also treated to schools of yellowtail fusiliers and bi-color parrotfish.
The introductory divers saw a Green Turtle along with some fire dartfish in five metres of water. On Milln and Flynn reefs, conditions were also a little lumpy, but 15 metres visibility prevailed. Northern reefs have had 10 to 15 metres as well.
With the school holidays coming up, consider diving as a perfect new hobby for the kids, or for you and the kids to do together! Exploring the magic of the reef is a great opportunity to bond and have fun in the sun. Next week I will have information on how and where children can learn to dive at various levels. Stay tuned!
The wind increased to 20 knots during the week, and we’ll see them continue to blow over the weekend. A few showers are also predicted, with some lingering clouds.
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.
