16th December – Picture Perfect Thursday, above and below
Todays dives were just what the doctor ordered! Both boats with divers and snorkellers enjoying a great morning. “2 Wild’s” divers started the morning at Manta Arch with some excellent blue water under a slightly greener surface. 35 mtr vis with 30 odd Grey Nurse Sharks at the arch and sandy bottom nearby was just ideal. Then around the corner at the Back Gutter was pretty much the same number of sharks.
Dive 2 showed of our top end of South Solitary Island with Black Cod, Eagle Rays, Bull rays and Trevally schooling, along with a few Nudibranchs to please the critter divers. Meanwhile the group of snorkellers loved the conditions around the Gantry with turtles on both sessions.
Temp jumping to 24c in patches and Vis between 20 and 35mtrs
