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!!

Western Rock Lobster or Crayfish
The Western Rock Lobster or Crayfish as it's known locally is seen on almost every dive on the reefs around Perth and is highly prized by some for the table. We are allowed to catch them while diving but are very restricted in the numbers taken. The season for their capture runs from November through to June but there is a maximum limit of 12 per recreational boat or 6 per person per day. It was delicious!!
