Extremely murky conditions on this dive, which perhaps explains why we saw such as large Octopus at the start of the dive. There were a few Weedy Sea Dragons out at the end of the pier in the wreckage from the ferro-cement yacht, and several Cowfish. The engine block was surrounded by Bullseyes again. We saw a solitary Old Wife out on the seagrass meadow to the West of the pier, and several schools of juvenile Leatherjackets.

Not a great dive to introduce Jonathan to diving in cooler water, but he seemed to enjoy it...
