The Perfect Opportunity – Diving Race Rocks
When you have an opportunity, I’ve always said, take advantage of it, no matter what. On Sunday, we had the chance to beat the weather and dive a unique location very close to Race Rocks while showcasing our boat and dive services to representatives of Whites Manufacturing. The original plan was to bring the guys out and dive Great Race before hitting the wall at West Race. Unfortunately, all good plans can be foiled by the weather and the tides. However, the opportunity arose to dive a very cool, life encrusted reef just southwest of Great Race called Rosedale Reef. This 400 ft. diameter, surface-kissing reef is where many a ship has succumb to the legend of Race Rocks. Diving this brilliantly colourful, life infested reef can only be done during slack tide and on waveless days on the water. Luckily for us we had those conditions and spent a good hour combing the reef for it’s many inhabitants while under the watchful eye of a couple of Californian Sea lions.
Having the opportunity to dive both Great Race and Rosedale Reef was a perfect way to spend the day on the water, and having Justin and Doug on board from Whites gave them a chance to see what we have to offer as a dive charter service.
Be that diver
