Photos from Feb trip

A few photos from the monthly club trip on ReefKist (Cairns Dive Centre) to Milln Reef, Feb 2012

We had a very good turnout on this dive. Weather was challenging in the morning but cleared up and calmed down beautifully in the afternoon! After lunch, we were able to dive and snorkel the wild (Southeast) side of Milln Reef! This is a rare opportunity. Everyone enjoyed it very much.
