    Looking for some spots other than the usual Vetchies/Limestone, Odd, and rockpools etc. Scuba or freedive, wanna find some new spots for collecting. Anyone know of any?

    Warners has an outside reef along the nets that has awesome stuff.
    We swim out there to spearfish quite often.
    If you swim out from the north side of the rocks just swim straight out to sea till you hit the nets. most of it is like only 10-15m deep.

    exactly...
    the nets are about 400m offshore...
    quite a swim... boats launch here too, so if you got a boat or jetski then it is a walk in the park... two days a go we had 20+m vis... today it is -2m so it can be very fickle.

    other cool places are infront of isipingo and prospecton.

    Ya i'm keen but probably not in the next few weeks as I haven't got my tank yet (still waiting for the aquaria 102L nanos to arrive). I do have another tank though cycling some LR and DIY rock I made, but I can't keep any organisms in that cause I have no lights:blush:.. It's killing me but i'm just gonna have to wait...
