Notes

  1. Slack time is middle of the slack – generally should aim to be in water by about 30 mins before this time
  2. Gemini leaving time assumes 1 hour journey and aim to arrive half an hour before 1st entry – 1 hour before slack.
1 Slack time is middle of the slack – generally should aim to be in water by about 30 mins before this time
Highlights in Blue are optimal slack weekends for diving the Alex

Red on pale green – good times for Gemini departure (not too early / late)
