Reef Report for Saturday, May 20, 2000

Cold Waters Bring Flippered Friends

Another week of unpredictable weather has left us wondering "What next??". Windy and wet is the general cry from crew on live-aboard boats during the week. However, the local weather bureau predicts that conditions will improve, with winds dropping from 25 knots to 15 knots over the weekend. © Great Barrier Reef Enterprises The showers should ease by Sunday as well.

Never fear divers! The wind and rain havenít made underwater ventures a lost cause. Visibility on Flynn and Milln reefs has been around 10-15 metres. Snorkelers have been privy to large turtles feeding and the colder water has seen an increase in the number of dolphins playing around the reefs. Open water dive students have sighted a couple of large white tip reef sharks, nearly two metres in length.

On the northern reefs the conditions have been much the same, with 15 metres visibility and 20-knot winds.

(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.
