Took Marie here as it was new area for her and she was excited by what I'd seen.  This time we spent more time investigating the seagrass bed in the shallows - which revealed species like Gobbleguts and Sea Trumpeter - both new for me.

Navy Pier, Exmouth - Amazing dive site! Better than Ningaloo Reef and no boat ride to get there. Sharks, large schools of fish and many octopus. Lots of life clustered in a small space. DO NOT MISS THIS SITE IF YOU GO TO WA!
