19th November 2020 – STOP!….. Turtle Time
After a few days being dry, we took 2 Wild out to South Solitary Island for a double dive.
Manta Arch was the choice for the first dive, as all divers were greeted by Grey Nurse Sharks at the arch followed by a large friendly Hawksbill Turtle who wouldn’t leave our divers alone. One group of divers went to the back gutter where there was another 20 more Grey Nurse Sharks plus a little Spanish Dancer in the gutter in and around the sharks. In addition we had large schools of Travelly throughout the dive, large Black Cod, Nudibranchs, and Wobbegongs.
For the second dive, all divers did a drift from Cleaner Station to South Boulder Mooring. Along our way down, we saw more Grey Nurse Sharks, countless Green Sea Turtles and Hawksbill Turtles, Eagle Rays, Moray Eels, Wobbegongs, and more Nudibranchs.
Water Temperature: 21 degrees
