Few screen shots from under the pier this morning, spent about 45min swimming, seen a big school of large trevally, whiting, it was easily as good as some of the snorkeling I’ve done in Fiji

Nice pics Joffa, I've read that st leonards pier is one of the best dives around, although I've never done it lol, another good one is the reef area just to the right of queenscliff pier. Joffa have you gone after scallops in this area?

Nah, I pretty much just dive to have a look, I really enjoy the pier and it’s quick and easy. I cleaned the fish this morning at the boat ramp and water looked great so headed to the pier for a swim

Thanks digger, jumped in for 15minutes at lunch time today without my GoPro, ended up floating a meter above a school of trevally ave size at a guess would have been mid 40,s. Never get sick of it. And it’s not 20 meters from an easy access point off the pier
