I haven't heard of anyone. I'd be interested in giving it a run out of Melbourne but it's going to be cold...

 

Things floating around in the EAC could be interesting.

I take it you were inspired by William Tan's presentation on the recent Underwater Tour?

The place to run it would be from Mike Balls spoilsport in the Coral sea. Where you have 2000M water coming up to a reef edge.

I'd be interested in getting something organised in Melbourne. Have a couple of other people who are keen and a boat we could hire. Might be a bit of trial and error but if anyone is up for it let me know.

Regrettably I missed the Tour through being stuck at work. I missed it last year too...hopefully 2020 is gonna be my year!

 

Sheree, have you talked to Luke or someone else? Drop me a note if you need numbers, I'd be happy to join you. liz@lizrogersphotography.com
