On Tuesday 20 Dec 2011 we dived at Jagged Edge Reef. A bunch of new faces on the boat as almost every day. A big flat worm was spotted and once again every one was impressed with our unspoilt reefs.
Underwater Photos taken in Jeffreys Bay and St. Francis Bay
These are some of the photos taken and dive logs written mostly by myself or Jacques Alberts who operated in Jeffreys Bay under the African Waters Scuba brand for many years. We include these old photos and stories here, so that you can get an idea of what it looks like underwater in our area.
What a surprise it was to find a Spider on Jagged Edge reef. Thanks to Koos who pointed it out and also found another smaller one. We are so lucky to dive unspoilt reefs with so many creatures on them. After more than 2 years of diving on the same reefs new things are still found on almost every dive.
On both days we dived Discovery Channel due to almost no swell, warm water and great viz. Heidi and Jaco who joined us on their discover scuba dive saw a nice 2,5m raggie, loads of fish life, nudi's, anenomy etc just to name a few things. A school of Jutt Jaw fish also joined in the fun and to see such a big school was very uncommon.
On 15 December we started the Holiday season off with a couple of PADI DSD's. Nice warm water in the pool at Steve's place who had forgotten that he had left the hose in the pool and filled it to the brim. Heidi and Jaco from JBay, Collett from Natal and Estel from Spain enjoyed their experience and joined us on a dive in the Ocean the following day. Here are some pics....
On Saturday we did our very first double tank dives to St Francis. Overcast and raining but determined to dive those reefs having waited so long to do so. On our way there a whale and her calf were playing in the bay opposite Paradys. Splashing with their tails and reminding us of their power. As the rains hit we still had about 3km to go before our first dive.
On Saturday 22 Oct we had two PADI Discover Scuba Diving sessions at the Savoy hotel. Some were very nervous to go underwater but as they got used to the feeling of breathing underwater it was more difficult to get them out the water. All 4 of them also decided to do an ocean dive on Sunday morning.
On 30 September 2011 our dive fest kicked off with cloudy, windy weather and only one launch was done due to bad visibility. On Saturday morning the weather had cleared and so had the visability. Divers enjoyed 18 deg water with 8 to 10m viz.
