15th November 2019 – Smokey South Solitary
15th November 2019
Today, 15th November 2019, we had a slow trip out due to the low visibility from the smoke of NSW & queensland fires, but our divers were excited to breathe some fresh air under the waves.
For our first dive, all of our divers dropped in a Buchanan’s Wall. We saw a huge amount of wobbegongs, some lionfish, and a few turtles. And we even saw a reindeer wrasse!
On our surface interval and after morning tea, we heading up to the north end of South Solitary Island. Our certified divers descended to Shark Gutters, making their way over to The Gantry. Our students dropped in on The Gantry mooring. At least a dozen – (they claim 15!) Grey Nurse Sharks were spotted in the gutters. Also spotted down North Wall were turtles, tarwhine, trevally, bullseyes and blue fusiliers.
Congratulations to our PADI Open Water Divers who were certified today! Ramona, Ivana, Suannah, and Hugo!
