The weekend of the 17th and 18th of August was truly magical.
We were fortunate to do a night dive in the passage between St Bees and Keswick island. The tide was slack and getting ready to turn when we went in. Diving at night in the passage there is a drop off which goes from 5m to around 18m maximum. We were fortunate to see some large pelagic who were inquisitive and wondering what we were doing. We were also fortunate see the coral spawning. This was my first experience. WE sat at one of the bommies off sure for around 2o minutes. WE saw Lion fish, octopus, eagle rays and watched the coral. A great night dive
On the Saturday the 2 backpackers from Italy decided they wanted to have a refresher course. Again the seas were flat, the winds were non existent so we explored the coral bommies at the moorings. The great thing about the moorings is it's around 10 maximum so we spent a lot of time there. Some great swimthroughs and we got to see a Cobia. Its the first one I have seen in the Whitsundays
Finally on the Sunday we set out around the islands, Keswick and St Bees to do what we love the most, go exploring, we explored Singapore Bay, Connies Caves, found the bat cave did a snorkel dive on the wreck of the Cremer and circumnavigated St Bees island
Please check out some of the photos, It was a great weekend for all of the guests staying at the Keswick Island Guest House, and in the self contained cabins.
