Diving the Fleur
On Saturday morning conditions were perfect for a long boat ride around False Bay. The sea was flat with almost no wind and overcast conditions. I joined Pisces for a twenty minute boat ride from Long Beach to the Fleur. Looking down from the boat we could see that it was going to be dark down there. We descended into the darkness and ended up smack bang on the deck (Thanks skipper !!!). With minimal bottom time of 15 mins the quick swim around revealed lots of sea urchins and muscles and a few fish. Hmmmm, not much sea life here. Visibility was fair two to three metres and somewhere along the dive I hit a patch of 5˚ C water. I dived 28% nitrox and my dive light was a necessity.
