Kirsty and I thought that the visibility was slightly better than yesterday, but not by much. The Go Pro Hero 8 had trouble with the the muck in the water throwing off the white balance and focus. The old Hero 4 that Kirsty was using got much better footage of the school of Yellow Kingfish that circled us near the start of the dive.

We did manage to find the Port Jackson Sharks again, spotting 8 of them in a long cave. We also found a big mail Blue Throated Wrasse, a couple of Old Wives, Snapper, Dusky Morwong, Moonlighters, and some Scalyfins tending their algae patches.

I found out on this dive that the battery for the GoPro Hero 8, when set to 30 frames per second, wide, with image stability turned off, doesn't quite stretch to 100 minutes - something that the Hero 4 could do comfortably. On the other hand, the image quality of the 8 is far bettter than the 4...
