Julie and Terry on this 95 minute dive to 6.6 m depth out from the Kings Beach boat ramp. Water temperature was 26C and the visibility varied from 5 to 10 m.There was a lot of surge that prevented any close examination of the substrate so we spent a lot of time drifting with the surge, unable to look closely for our usual targets. However, what was missed in the way of nudibranchs was made up for by the octopus, cuttlefish, moray eels, sweetlips, and other (non-opisthobranch species) we saw.
