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!!

Cave on Three Mile Reef
This shot was take at Three Mile Reef just off the coast at Hillarys Marina in Perth. The reef is limestone and there are lots of caves to explore - some quite small and a bit of a squeeze and others like this one are quite large. The fish in the middle with the black bar through its eye is a juvenile West Australian Jewfish. The black bar disappears as the fish matures. The Jewfish or Dhufish is a prized table fish in WA but numbers have declined over years of over fishing.
