19th July 2020 – Back in the Water!
After a week of windy weather and high seas, the ocean cleared up for our divers and we headed out today to South Solitary Island.
For our first dive, we headed down into Cleaner Station. For this dive we saw a little grey nurse, at about 1m length, and heaps of Wobbegongs. There was an orangutang crab, an octopus, and schooling fish including ReindeerWrasse, Moorish Idols, and Silver Trevalley.
On our second dive we dropped into Cleaner Station/South Boulder. Here we “spotted” 2 giant Spotted Eagle Rays, along with more Wobbegongs swimming along. There were plenty of Nudibranches, more schooling fish off of boulder wall including red Bigeye, and Tarwhine. We also spotted 10 Blue Groupers!
Visibility: A very blue 12m!
Temperature: 20 °
