15th January 2021 – Fishy Friday
Today Wild Fin headed out to South Solitary for a double dive, hoping for improved visibility!
For the first dive, our site was Manta Arch and the Back Gutter. Here there was so much fish life to see! Our divers got to see some swimming Wobbeygongs on both this dive and our second dive! These guys normally lay on the sea floor, to see them swimiming is a treat! There was about 15 Grey Nurse Sharks, and plenty of Nudibranche’s too.
The second dive was the star of the show, with heaps to see. We headed from Shark Gutters to the Gantry for this one, seeing some Big Black Cod, and some big bull rays too. There were more schooling fish, Nudibranches, loggerhead turtles and green turtles – about 6 in total. We saw flatworns, small blue spot rays, and a Blue Grouper eating his lunch (a sea urchin!)
