The forecast for the past week end dives did not look good but we decided to go ahead with planned dives and dive and make a call from there. The results, an extremely low tide due to full moon on our first launch extremely high again by the 3rd and last launch. The temperature of 14 degrees on all 4 dives and viz from 1- 10 meters made it well it really good. Sometimes the big predicted swell did effect the diving with some surge but that was not hectic at all and some good photographs were the proof of it. Rockeater wreck, Pietermaritzburg wreck and Partridge point was dived.
Then Sunday morning early, very early a group of us entered the dark waters at Windmill beach. The sun was hinting of coming up over the mountains on the other side of False bay and the full moon disappeared behind the mountains on the Atlantic side. The first bit was not good with 1 meter viz due to the surge but once outside the channel it cleaned out beautifully. With the sun coming out 20 minutes later it cleaned up even better and we ended a good dive with breakfast at Boulders. The restaurant is overlooking the ocean and we had a good view of the bay with penguins on the rocks as well. We also noticed that the South Easter (Cape Doctor) was picking up and probably messing with the dive conditions for the rest of the day.
