13th September 2015 – Barney The Turtle Having a Nap at Manta Arch
Yet another wonderful day out at South Solitary Island!!
Dive one today was at Manta Arch. Our divers were treated with a visit from Barney the beautiful Logger Head Turtle who is a resident to the island. She was having a nap near the Arch until the sound of divers woke her up!! Plenty of Grey Nurse Sharks in and around the Arch.
The hour surface interval was very relaxing with the sun beaming in and even the rare sighting of a SEAL on the surface!!
Dive two was a drift from Cleaner Station down to The Gantry, our divers spotted more Grey Nurse Sharks, Big Black Cod, Nudibranchs, Lionfish Octopus and lots of Green Sea Turtles at The Gantry.
Congratulations to David, Maddison and Liam for becoming PADI Open Water Divers today!!!!
