St Pauls & Flinders Reef Dive - Tech Divers Only
When?Start time: Saturday 9:00am (19 May)
End time: Saturday 2:00pm (19 May)
St Paul Wreck and Flinders Reef make a great diving combination day. THIS COMBINATION IS FOR TEC DIVERS ONLY. Light lunch and refreshments are included in the price.
The wreck of the Saint Paul now lies between 38 and 43 meters of water on a gentle sand slope due east of Smiths Rock. She sits in an upright position, favouring her port side, with the bow pointing westward to the rock that sent her there. Although deep enough to
escape substantial damage from storms and cyclones, nearly 90 years on the sea floor have taken their toll on her remains. The superstructure and most of the hull plates have now rusted away, leaving the wreckage of a once fine ship collapsed on the sea floor. From a divers perspective this is a very challenging dive. The Saint Paul lies in an exposed area of sea, at the maximum depth limit for recreational "no decompression diving". With an air no decompression limit of approximately eight minutes, it's not possible to fully appreciate this wreck in just one dive. The wreck itself provides plenty to see if you take your time, from encrusted deck winches and lift raft anchors to nuggets of chromium ore, the careful observer is well rewarded. The wreck is alive with marine life and although it is common practice to dive her early in the day to escape the afternoon onshore winds, the life is more prevalent in the early evening when large schools of snapper and yellowtail kingfish seem to be settling in for the night .Underneath deck plates and around the bases of the engine and boilers, large estuary cod can be found lurking in the shadows. Like many dive sites the stakes go up when a slight current is prevalent, bringing these huge cod out and above the wreck to compete with the pelagic for any food coming down current.
