Bill Hamilton and Andrew Powls went to Conger Alley, Loch Long on Sunday for a couple of dives. The weather blessed us with a dry day, OKish Viz and water temperature of 12 degrees. Plenty of life to be seen with the highlight of the day being a free swimming Conger Eel in full hunt mode. There were a number of very large Ballan Wrasse and a big Lobster. Also one nice Scorpion Fish
Bill Hamilton, Robert Ross, Andrew Powls and Brodie Thomson had a good day out diving the Twin Piers site in Loch Long. The weather held for most of the day until we were packing up to drive home. Viz was OKish and the water temperature a balmy 14-15 degrees. Notable finds were a number of very large Conger Eels in amongst the rocks, a large number of Whelks (some laying eggs), a large dogfish and a profusion of starfish eating the mussels around the piers.
Paul Lafferty, Andrew Powls, Bill Hamilton and Robert Ross went to Anchor Point for a couple of dives. The weather started well although the rain arrived by the end of diving.
No midges today though!!!
Viz was generally good and we saw a good selection of life on the reefs including a good sized scorpion fish. I’ve included some pics on our facebook page
Bill Hamilton Robert Ross Andrew Irvineand Andrew Powls headed to Anchor Point Loch Fyne for Andrew Irvine’s last dives to qualify as Branch Diver. The day was nice – if you could tolerate the midges! Quite a collection of Lion’s mane jellyfish in the shallows which we needed to carefully avoid. Plenty of life on the reefs and fairly good vis made for a good set of dives. Only marred by the loss of Andrew’s weight belt towards the end of the dive. If anyone finds a shotbelt at about 10m we would appreciate it’s return!
Congratulations to Andrew for completing his Branch Diver course
Gareth Ward, Andrew Irvine, Bill Hamilton and Andrew Powls went for a club dive to Congor Alley, Loch Long.
A beautiful day in Scotland cannot be beaten. The viz was generally good and there was a good selection of life as usual at this site. Andrew Irvine was doing his 2nd/3rd open water dives and all went well for him. We met the usual congers and a selection of the other life which frequents this site. WE finished it off with a drink overlooking the head of the loch from Arrochar. A great day. Hope you enjoy the pics on our facebook page
