Conditions have been great on Straddie this half of spring. The water temperature is creeping up into the early 20’s and we have been treated to some fantastic visibility, Shag rock hit a comfy 30 meters + which was exceptional and made for some great diving.

From June to October Flat Rock which is approximately 2.5 nautical miles off the shores of Point Lookout, plays hosts a population of Grey Nurse Sharks. Grey Nurse Sharks may look ferocious as their teeth are located on the outside of their mouths and they grow to over 3 meters in length but, they are incredibly placid and considered to be the Labradors of the marine world.
