Kirsty and I tried another dive at Quiet Corner, hoping to see an Eagle Ray. Ths was following the advice of a snorkeller we met after our last dive at Ricketts. No Eagle Rays were spotted, and there was very little other fish life seen either. We did see a few Snapper and Zebrafish, a couple of Leatherjackets and Dusky Morwong, but all of the fish seemed to be very timid here - nothing like the normal site where we dive at Ricketts.

There were lots of cracks, crevices, and overhangs, and lots of lush growth on the bottom, so it should have been teeming with life! Quite a disappointment really...

For this dive we had to park on the other side of Beach Road, in one of the side streets. We used our beach trolley to wheel all of our gear down to the path that ran along the waterfont, and locked the trolley to a convenient park bench. It certainly made the relatively long walk a lot easier!
