Rise of the Knight

Rise of the Knight

Arriving above the wreck site and finding that dark blue water always brings out the excitement of the chance of that elusive yet perfect dive. It’s the dive that you are always yearning for, where the water is so clear you can see the bottom, and the wreck, from just a few metres down, with no current allowing a diver to just glide down, flying in free fall as if he were a bird.

Junee Resurgence - Apr 2006

PARTICIPANTS: Paul Garske, David Apperley, Samir Alhafith

“CAN’T YOU FIND ME A BIG CAVE THAT HAS BIG PASSAGE SO I CAN USE MY TWIN REBREATHER AND MY SCOOTER?

... AND, HAS GIN CLEAR WATER SO MY 50WATT HID LIGHT IS USEFUL?

….AND, HAS WARM WATER SO I CAN STAY IN FOR HOURS?”

…“I WANT A CAVE WHERE I CAN USE ALL MY TOYS DAVE!!”

This was Paul’s comments after he and I did a dive in Tasmania’s Junee Cave at Christmas. While we would all love to dive a new cave like Paul described above, we have to settle for what we have.

SS Bega - Oct 2005

It started innocently enough, as these things normally do, I was just chatting to Paul Garske on Barry Hallet’s boat returning from one of the Long Reef wrecks when he mentions a new wreck down south that hasn’t been dived before and would I be interested? A couple of email exchanges, a few forms to join the Sydney Project, an initiation that involved a goat and a tank of heliox and I am on my way to Bermagui for the October Long Weekend.

Bermagui - Apr 2005

Diving the William Dawes & Bega

“Dave! We’ve got to go!” We’re 130m underwater on the US Liberty Ship, William Dawes. Dave’s tie off has just come off the wreck, the end of the line is disappearing into the distance and we’ve got less than 2 minutes to get back to the moving shot line across 100m of sand. And I’ve just seen a huge gun pointing upwards across the deck. I want just 5 more minutes, but we’ve got to go right now. Talk about temptation!
