Early morning dive at Fly Point

The very next morning after diving the Pipeline at Nelson  Bay the previous night, we did a sunrise dive at Fly Point, Nelson Bay.  Fly Point is a sanctuary zone and there certainly was plenty of fish life.  The water was reasonably clear with about 10 metres visibility.

Moray Eel:  If you look close you can see small crab like animals around the eye and mouth.

Nice lips

Durban Hinged Prawns:  We've seen these prawns all along the coast, from Lizard Island in the far north to Nelson Bay.  I wonder if we will keep seeing them as we travel south?
