Got Crabs….?

No one knows where then come from, no one knows when they come, no one even knows why they are here, but every year, around May/June the pier in Rye, Melbourne, Victoria is swarmed by masses of Spider Crabs that attract divers from all over!

They say it is when the water reaches about 14 degrees (brrrrrrrr) that they start seeing small clusters of these guys around, then for about 3 or 4 days the swarm will move through the area, crawling up pylons of the pier, forming giant moving blankets of crabs across the sea floor and clambering all over each other and anyone who stays still on the bottom too long!

If you want to dive with these guys, you need to be ready to go at a moments notice when they come along, but we think it would definitely be worth it.. HOW COOL!

Dare you to lay down???
