Lena Dive Wreck - Bunbury Western Australia

 A great dive a couple of weeks ago on the wreck of the 'Lena'. The Lena was a Russian fishing boat that was found to be fishing illegally in Australian waters in 2002 and was pursued almost to South Africa before it was apprehended and returned to Western Australia. The captain was found guilty in court and fined and his ship was confiscated. The ship was obtained and cleaned out then sunk as a dive wreck off the coast near Bunbury in the SW of Western Australia. It is around 55 metres long and lies around 20 metres deep not far off the coast. I was lucky enough to be allowed to do two one hour solo dives along side a group of 10 other divers.

Yellow-banded Pipefish - Tulamben Bali.

These shots were taken in June 2019 on a trip to Tulamben in Bali. I was there for a few days to experience diving on the Liberty ship-wreck and visited a variety of dive sites locally.

Orangebanded Coralfish

This shot was taken at Steep Point, the most westerly point on the Australian mainland situated around 800 Km north of Perth, Western Australia. I was on a fishing trip and after having lines snapped by sharks, decided to go down and have a look. No sharks around but some nice reef and a few fish.

 Fairly uncommon this far south.

 Happy diver on the safety stop!
