11th February 2019 – Beautiful blue water but dont forget the macro’s

6 months ago

Yet again South Solitary Island was glowing blue and the warm, clear water was teeming with life!!!
Dive one was at Buchanan’s Wall and we could easily see the bottom from the surface!! We had a large male Green Sea Turtle swim next to one of our groups and plenty of colourful Nudibranchs along the Wall.
Dive two was a drift from Shark Gutters down to The Gantry as the divers rolled in there were two Leopard Sharks straight under the boat!!
Boulder Wall had a huge abundance of life with Tarwhine, Bullesyes, Black Cod, Mantis Shrimp, Blue Tangs, Banded Coral Shrimp and a cute little Yellow Boxfish near Five Metre Rock.
Congratulations to Vicki who finished her Deep specialty on dive one and Peak Performance Buoyancy on dive two.
