Dive Report: Mikey b 6-9 April 2012  Dropped in on a slight tide just on the corner.I was diving with my recently qualified buddy again and we had a really nice dive over reefs covered in thick colourful Deadmen's Fingers and a few Sunstars and Devon Cup Corals, and lots of Featherstars. Found a huge Tritonia Nudibranch munching on Soft Coral, but the highlight was an Octopus that emerged from its hole and jetted past us, which made my buddys day! Finished the dive at the 10m Kelp-topped wall round in the bay.
