Coastal Walk from Bundeena to Otford

Posted on Aug 16, 2015 in Hiking, Training

Last weekend as part of training for our upcoming trip to Nepal, we (Kelly, Graham, Jack and I) did the coastal walk from Bundeena to Otford.

Should you become a Rescue Diver? Over the weekend when I was at the harbour, the seas picked up considerably when we finished the dive and there were huge waves crashing over the breakwater. The conditions changed dramatically compared to when we first went into the water. It made me realise the benefits of the rescue diver program and how it make divers more confident and prepared and I would recommend the course to everyone to further improve their diving skills.
