This blog contains photos, mainly taken during diving around Perth and other parts of Western Australia, with occasional other locations thrown in. This header photograph was taken during a trip to Sipadan Island off the coast of Borneo. It shows a Grey Reef Shark disappearing into the gloom, which drops to around 600 metres deep - I was at around 30 metres!!

This shot was taken at the end of a dive on the wreck of the Key Biscayne off Lancelin just north of Perth. The wreck is an oil drilling rig which was being towed to Fremantle for repair in 1983 and was caught in bad weather and sank. It sits at 42 metres and is probably the best of the local wrecks because of it's size and condition. It can get quite busy on the descent line at the end of a dive as the bottom time is relatively short and everyone finishes around the same time. The site is 10 miles off the coast and very exposed with a fierce current running most days.
