12th January 2015 – Fish Soup on Boulder Wall
[vc_column width=”1/2″]The forecast this morning predicted some strong southerlies which would of put our trip on hold none the less we steamed out to South Solitary Island and the conditions were surprisingly good.
Dive 1 was at Shark Gutters where our divers saw roughly five Grey Nurse, Lion Fish, Turtles, Black Cod, King Fish, Eagle Rays and plenty of Nudibranchs.
Dive 2 was a return swim from Shark Gutter to South Boulder and back again where the Wall was covered with large schools of fish, Tarwhine, Sweep, Stripeys, Goat-Fish, some Large Snapper, Bullrays and Nathan’s Students got a bit of a fright when Barney the Loggerhead Turtle came flying out of Cleaner Station Cave… I think they woke her up!!!
