Kelvin Grove 21/08/2014

Vlad, Josh and myself went out to Kelvin Grove for a skill/fun dive. Josh had never been, so it was great to show someone around a site they had never been to before. I even went so far as to put together a written GUEPLAN dive plan, something I realized I did not do enough of lately.

We met on a perfect evening, calm, clear and warm. There was a group coming out of the water when we arrived, and reported seeing a large octopus out in the open. Unfortunately we would not see it.

Our dive plan was simple, 15 minutes to the right at 27m, then a return at 15m giving an average of 21m, and 30 minutes. Then 30 minutes of skills at around 9m-12m. We ran through the Basic 5, valve drill, s-drill, gas switches, and SMB deployment with a standard ascent to the surface.

Everything went according to plan, and was a lot of fun. On the dive, we saw some large nudibranchs and red fur crabs. The skills all went well, and we planned on trying to keep up the skills dives.
