Today we took both Wild Fin and 2 Wild out to South Solitary Island. We had divers and snorkelers who were keen to take advantage of this amazing warm blue water.

For the first dive, divers on Wildfin did Manta Arch, where there was 20+ Grey Nurse Sharks at the arch. We also had lots of Nudibranchs, Black Cod, Moray Eels, and large schools of travelly throughout the dive. Divers on 2 Wild, descended down at Shark Gutters, and checked out the whole top end of the island. Divers were greeted with loads of fish life, including schooling Fusiliers and Stripey’s, along with Blue Grouper’s, King fish, Lionfish, and the resident Black Cod. In addition we also had another Hammerhead sighting by two of our divers while they were completing their safety stop at Shark Gutters mooring.
The decision for the second dive for both boats was a drift. Divers on Wildfin split up into two groups, where some were dropped off at the back gutter and swam through the gap and finished up at South Boulder, where the others on Wildfin drifted from Cleaner to South Boulder. At the back gutter, there was approximately 30 Grey Nurse Sharks, a swimming Numb Ray, Green Sea Turtles close to the gap, along with loads of schooling fish. Boulder wall was full of fish life for the rest of divers on Wildfin, more Green Sea Turtles, Slipper Lobsters, and Nudibranchs. Divers and snorkelers on 2 Wild drifted from Shark Gutters to the Gantry. Eagle Rays were spotted, Grey Nurse Sharks, lots of Green Sea Turtles, and loads of schooling fish.
