I was surprised how little large fish life there was under the pie, but the water was seething with tiny fry. We saw lots of Hermit Crabs, a Spider Crab, several Leatherjackets, Flounder, a large Pipe Fish, a Dumpling Squid, nudibranchs and Roughies. We also got to swim under the hull of Notorious, the Caravelle replica that we looked over at Paynesville a couple of years ago. She was tied up at the pier, and was planning on staying there for the weekend. Towards the end of the dive we also swam out to the wreck to the East of the pier, where the water was much clearer.
