2020 End of Year Christmas Party – The Gravel Loader and Grey Nurse Sharks

Share This :

Today we had 30 friends (mermaids and mermen) descend on the Gravel Loader and Bushrangers Bay at Bass Point Reserve for Freediving Central’s end of year social dive and Christmas Party!

Even though the weather was a little gloomy for our morning dive the visibility was an insane 15 meters! We all gave into ‘pier’ pressure diving around the old wharf and got some epic group shots of everyone diving down at the same time! Even the local scuba divers joined in the fun, although we’re not sure they even knew they had joined in! Haha!

Ali brought all of the LOLs exiting the water in typical Ali fashion after our first dive and the girls rain dance had the opposite effect with the sun breaking through and shining bright for the rest of the day!

Morena, Jessie and Vivian made us a delicious cheese board to enjoy during our picnic lunch and we all celebrated our final social dive of the year with a seriously refreshing can of Solo. (It’s become a bit of a tradition for Freediving Central’s social dives to include a celebratory Solo at the end of each dive – thanks Dan!)

To end the day we searched for Grey Nurse sharks in Bushrangers Bay Aquatic Reserve. Half of the group were lucky enough to see them while the others just enjoyed backflipping in the water with everyone.

What a perfect end to 2020, surrounded by such amazing people and friends! We can’t wait to see what adventures 2021 will bring for the Freediving Central Community. Our social dives are becoming very contagious!
