With a small group of divers we were able to cruise on out to South Solitary Island, following the warm blue water. Over the past couple of days the swell had stopped us from diving the northern end of South Solitary, however today we were able to dive cleaner station for our first. The highlight of the dive was our resident Loggerhead Turtle (Barney) feeding on some Sea Urchins at the bottom of the mooring, then casually swimming around our divers in search of more food. We also saw schools of Tarwhine, Black Cod, blue Groper, Moses Perch and a glimpse of a Manta Ray, though no photo evidence. For our second we decided to go to Split Solitary Island where we moored at Coral Corner seeing loads of fish including Nudibranchs, Bullseye, Wrasse and many more.
