10th December 2016 – Bizarre looking Travelly visits South Solitary Island
We ended up going to both South Solitary and South West Solitary Island today in search of clear water.
Dive one was at the northern end of South Sol, the amount of marine life there today was truly amazing with schools of Travelly, Pomfreds, some very odd looking Travelly and one big make Grey Nurse Shark, although the visibility on the bottom wasn’t the best everyone had a blast!!
Dive two we headed into South West Sol and the visibility had improved slightly, lots of Nudibranchs were spotted, a sleeping Green Sea Turtle and some Blue Lipped Anemone’s. All of the divers had come up saying they seen a juvenile Crested Horn shark swimming everywhere, very cool to see as they tend to keep very still and on the bottom.
Congratulations to Claudia Jambor who completed her PADI Open Water Diver Course today!!!
