Blairgowrie Pier

Postby neilegend » Wed, 22 Nov 2006 5:16 pm

many of us have dived this site, i dived it at the tail end of the march of the crabs and their mating season and thought "hmm yeah okay, nice easy but not deep, done it and not in a hurry to get in here again" .
but i did it with Tony (G2GW) on sunday afternoon with Adrian and his wife Maureen, and found it to be an excellent dive with about 6 - 7 different nudis and a tassled angler fish (freaky looking thing that it is!!). a fair bit to see here, i enjoyed it more this time around as i am more experienced and not looking for the "big WOW" factor but can see smaller items and be amazed by the diversity to be found in this site.
So as a dive site i highly recommend it (as most of you do) and would happily go again.

i want to be under the sea, i breath my air by the tank !.
so far 80+ dives and trying to get more every week or two.
lets face it the bay is the best dive site until, now, brumby buggers it up! NO to dredging! no matter which person leads the State.

Hi Neil,

Hope you're still not wearing that green towel....I don't think it was very fetching....perhaps it's the colour.

Blairgowrie is awesome at night - the structure and access is excellent and the growth on the structure is impressive at night, the nudies are often unusually large at Blairgowrie, and the pier has the added distinction of often being sheltered.

Mornington is awesome if the water is clear/clean....it's my favourite pier.

i know what it was!! i was wearing a blue jumper with it, and the say blue and green should never be seen unless there's something inbetween! that may have been the problem the colour clash!!
what a fashion faux pas on my account!

FYI - got to bed at 2am after washing gear from Mornington dive.....I took my time (soaking, rinsing, inverting to try etc).

I rarely like sleeping down the peninsula....prefer to wash my gear before the boots start to smell like slimy sock cheese......
