Dive Report: Jas and shazz I had a great dive at 5.25am today at Gogo Burn or as we call it "The Putting Green". Went down to 30mtrs and found quite a few squat lobsters and a few dogfish too. I was even up for a fight with one (as taught by John!!). Also saw a lovely Sea Scorpion too. Good for depth training and good for a look but camera work was difficult. Overall a really nice dive and in 12deg water too!!!
