Social Dive - Undaria Collection Day 23.09.2023

The Weeding Gang
These 5 fabulous people helped out with the Undaria collection at Frankston Pier today. Conditions were great, and together we removed over 300 specimens, and more than half of these had well-developed reproductive features (sporophyll's). As they were mostly new to this project, we ran them through an induction, teaching them all about the history and life-cycle of Undaria. There is still a lot growing on the pier piles, so we'll continue to run these days as often as we can.
For those that don't already know, we are doing this on behalf of the #victoriannationalparksassociation and #reefwatch, so they can gather data on the species and assess the effectiveness of different removal methods. All specimens are collected under current permits and access agreements with relevant authorities.


Advanced Open Water Course Completed 24.09.2023

This weekend newest Diveline's Advanced Open Water Divers. Conditions were the best for the wrecks dives on yesterday. The seal on the J4 was talked about lots. Congratulations to you all.


Social Dive - Clean up Day at Frankston Pier 24.09.2023

Sunday social dive, we went back to our local pier to do a clean up The water was 14 degrees and excellent viz. Everyone came back with full bags of rubbish. More phones, gold balls, towels, bongs, plastics. Got to feel sorry for our marine life. Great job to you all and thank you for making a difference to our local pier.


Looks like a big summer. Get out and enjoy a dive soon!!
