2 Wild descended down at Manta Arch first up, where they saw 15+ Grey Nurse Sharks between the Arch and the Back gutter, a Banded Coral Shrimp, Black Cod, and Nudibranchs. Wildfin rolled in at Shark Gutters, where they saw 8 Grey Nurse Sharks in and around the 2nd gutter, Lionfish, Moray Eels, Nudibranchs, Black Cod, and a Reindeer Wrasse.
For the second dives both boats did a drift from the top end and finished up at South Boulder Mooring. Highlights from the dives include, a Blue Ribbon Eel, a huge Black Cod, Hawksbill Turtle, Grey Nurse Sharks, a really cool friendly Jellyfish (our featured image for today’s report which was taken by Lindsay) and a Blind Shark.
