I finally got some bottom time in my home town, Durban. Surface conditions were perfect for the boat ride out to the wreck. Undersurface conditions were 20 deg C and around 10 metres viz. Cooper’s wreck itself is still pretty much intact and lies upright. There were huge lion fish swimming around the wreck. It was amazing to sea them swim out in the open and follow us for most part of the dive. The wreck is also home to a few colourful moray eels. A wonderful introduction to diving at Durban.
G-Spot – Durban
My second dive for the day was at a reef called G-Spot, named so because it’s difficult to find . The colour of the marine life on the reef is amazing with lots of various colour box fish and baby box fish too. There were loads of big crayfish as well and a school of silver fish. Definitely worth the visit.
