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 King Wrasse
This shot was taken recently on The Strip - a long reef system off the coast at Mindarie Marina in the northern Perth suburbs. The Strip is a good dive site because the top of the reef is at eighteen metre deep then then is a seven metre drop to the sandy bottom. This gives a perfect vertical seven metre wall to explore!! The reef stretches for several kilometres and there are lots of interesting sites along its length. The Western King Wrasse is seen on most dives around here and they are relatively timid, hiding in the weed on the top of the reef. This one very kindly posed for me.
