A Day on the Bay: Bounce diving in Hout Bay

Date: 13 April 2013

Saturday 13 April was a magnificent, windless day. I had only a few divers on the boat, as the Open Water student who was meant to do her qualifying dives that day (as a double tank dive) had woken up with sinusitis. We made the most of the amazing surface conditions to cruise around the area looking for clean water. The visibility wasn’t terrible, at around 8-10 metres, but it was inconsistent and wouldn’t qualify as a magnificent Atlantic day.

Despite that we had a great time – did three dives in various locations, checked out the BOS 400, and the wreckage on shore close to Middelmas Blinder (Hakka Reef), just around the corner from Maori Bay. I’ll share more photos of the BOS 400 tomorrow.
