Last night we dived the Pipeline (co-op wall) at Nelson Bay and it was beautiful. This was our first dive at Nelson Bay, which has some of the best shore diving in Australia, and because it’s shore diving we don’t have to reach into our pockets to go diving.
High tide was right on sunset, which is mandatory for this dive, and this worked out great for us as we could see the lay of the land in the light prior to nightfall. Also, we were not very familar with the dive site and its entry and exit points (even though we had dived this site about 6 years ago). We had about 6 metres visibility (pretty good for a night dive on a very dark night (the only light was from our torches, no moon, no stars, no boat or street lights). Our average depth would have been about 8 metres and the temperature was a comfortable 22 degrees.
And we was many nudibrach, here are a few samples.
