Fish Life at Boulder Wall, South Solitary Island by Jetty Dive

With surface conditions easing greatly, Too Wild cruised up to North Solitary, whilst Wildfin jetted out to South Solitary for some rather pleasant diving.

Wildfin’s divers dropped in at Manta Arch for dive one, A grey nurse, several different Nudibranchs, a Scorpion Leaf Fish were amongst the highlights there. Meanwhile Too Wild’s divers rolled in at Elbow Cave, where our divers saw a few Bullrays, Cobia and a Bronze Whaler in the distance.

After a not too brief morning tea, the divers from Wildfin rolled in at Cleaner Station to explore the top end of South Solitary, an inquisitive Bullray, three young Grey Nurse, a Blue Angelfish, and of course our resident Painted Anglerfish were seen. Several kilometers away, Too Wilds diver’s descended at Fish Soup after watching a Fur Seal play on the surface during morning tea and the site name speaks for itself as we could not keep track of the amount of fish on the dive along with a mass amount of Anemone Fish, Black Cod, Octopus and a little baby Cuttlefish near the mooring.
