Dive Anywhere Project

Update posted by Tony Strazzari On Nov 09, 2015

Dive Anywhere is currently investigating the Hunter River at the site of the River Port at Raymond Terrace (1830-1960). In our 10 or so dives there visibility has varied from 0.5 to nearly 3 metres in the 10 dives done there so far. The bottom varies from rocky, sandy to patches of thick mud. Maximum depth has been just over 8 metres. Very dark at the bottom due to a dirty band of water at the surface restricting light; but a torch helps. Aquatic life seen - largest fish are carp, probably European carp, also prawns, bullrout, a few small flathead, and many smaller fish. In dives here we have found black glass bottles and fragments, stick (Lamont) and marble-top (Codd) bottles from Newcastle, Sydney, Maitland and even Glen Innes. More details to come.
