13th September 2020 – Spectacular Conditions at South Sol
With another busy day of Whale Swimming, Whale Watching, and Scuba Diving planned, 2 Wild Headed out to South Solitary Island for a double dive.
For the first dive we dropped one group of Divers in at Manta Arch and one group headed to Cleaner Station.
At Manta Arch the divers spotted more than a dozen Grey Nurse Sharks, some Big Groupers, Black Cod, and even found a Cowfish! At Cleaner Station there were 6 or 7 more Grey Nurse Sharks, some Eagle Rays, and 4 really large Black Cod. There was a White Leaf Fish, and some orangutan crabs.
For our second dive we dived Shark Gutters to the Gantry. Here there were numerous Grey Nurses and 4 Turtles, along with a lot of fish life down boulder wall.
