Rye was our alternate dive site, after we checked out Flinders and decided that the visibility was no good. What a lucky decision!

Not long after entering the water we gound two Potbellied Seahorses wrapped around each other, and then, further out along the pier, we swam into a school of thousands of East Australian Salmon. They extended out each side of the pier as well, and was an amazing sight.

Towards the end of the dive we swam out to the wreck of the Eivion, and found a few Old Wives, Zebrafish, two Kastelnau's Wrasse, a Senator Wrasse, and a large Cuttlefish which put on quite a display. The recent bad weather appears to have had quite an effect on the wreck, with more timbers becoming detached from the hull.
