We’ve done some recent snorkels at Ochre Point (midway between Moana South and Maslin Beach North). The area is magnificent.

David Muirhead and I¬†weren’t able to dive there the first time we visited the spot due to less than ideal conditions.

David returned back to Ochre Point a little later on, this time with Graham Short and Alan Noble. They were able to do some snorkelling there on this occasion.

I went back there with David again sometime later on and we both managed to snorkel there this time, although conditions were still a little awkward.

That artefact on the beach appeared to be from a shipwreck or similar.

We had seen an old ship’s boiler a short distance away on the beach.

Here is a close-up of the small artefact on the beach again.

We hope to return to Ochre Point again soon.
