In Topic: Favorite dive-sites in New South Wales?

04 January 2015 - 05:46 AM

I sort of figures that there would be a very small chance to see gws around Montague, my sister is a bit nervous though and I guess she needed to hear it from someone else. 

 

I am thinking about heading to South West Rocks as well, it seems like a really cool dive-site, better totally skip out on Foster and go Fish Rock instead?

Quick last question to this topic, any chance/risk to see great whites on the seal dives in Montague or on any of the dive-sites above?  

 

I do realize that the ocean is a big pond and that these fish swim great distances and could be seen almost everywhere, what I am asking is if there is any real chance to see them? 

 

Thanks again, and happy new year! :)

Dear Doug, 

 

Yes I use a flat port regularly for both my 60mm and my 100mm, the reason that I want to use the Minidome is that I want to shoot medium sized subjects, and since a flatport increases magnification with 33% through refraction I wont be able to fit "bigger" things in the frame without backing up too far :)

 

The point of using the 60mm under a dome is to be able to shoot bigger things than you can when shooting behind a flat port.

 

Best regards, Morten

Fantastic! This forum never disappoints with great local knowledge, thanks Drew and Nigel! 

 

After doing a lot of research and after reading your advice I decided to leave out Byron Bay as it is a bit far to drive from my base in Sydney, so my plan is as follows: 

 

1: Narooma 

         -Montague Island (2 days of diving)

 

2: Sydney

          -Magic Point (2 days)

          -Kurnell (1 day)

          -Bare Island (1day) 

 

3: Forster 

          -Seal Rocks (2 days of diving)

 

Now all I need is a couple of good dive-shops, any recommendations? 

 

Thanks again for your help,

Best regards, Morten

Hi Shane, 

 

Looks like you are doing some amazing stuff up there in the north! Another place has now been added to the bucket list!

 

Unfortunately I presume it is going to be even colder (if possible) than our Nusa Penida dives! :)

 

Lots of greetings from Bali, 

Morten
