Harbour dive anyone??

There are reports of a pod of orcas frolicking in Wellington Harbour.

The killer whales were spotted near the Interislander ferry terminal this morning.

There are estimated to be fewer than 200 orca living in New Zealand waters.

They are most commonly spotted off the Bay of Plenty, East Coast and Hawke's Bay coasts in June, and again from October to December.

WOW! Those of us nipping in for a quick scallop dive could be in for a bit of a surprise! Imagine looking up to see one of those things looking at you!!!.

How would one go about cleaning sh1t from a drysuit I wonder? (assuming of course one remembered to go AAAAHHHH all the way to the surface :twisted: )

Saturday morning they were by Elsdon Pipe, and got right in to the shallows >2m where you normally put your fins on.
Alas gone by the time we had geared up.
