Had a night dive at karewa fri night after work, anchored in 25m on the sand at the edge of the reef se of the "sharks teeth". Heaps of fish life but we only saw a few crays, 1 big girl in berry and couple of small guys, they were well back in there holes too, I was expecting them to be more active, we got in the water just on dusk maybe we were a bit early? Was my buddys first night dive and my first since AOW back in 94. I bought a big torch off trade me last year and this was the first time ive got to try it out properly,its a uk600r it went well happy as, it seems quite buoyant tho is that normal?
Water temp was 13.6 and I was a bit dubious as this is coldest ive dived in new suit, pinnacle elite 1 piece merino lined 7/5mm with separate hood,so I put a thermal top on underneath and it was fine, toasty as!
Great vis about 10m
We will definitely be doing more night dives in future
