Happy 1st of April, aka April Fools Day. We had a lovely start of the month today, where MegaWild shot out for a double dive and SoWild went for a lovely morning snorkel! Upon arrival, we had very similar conditions to what we’ve had the past week.

Our snorkelers had a lovely crusie around the whole island, starting from the very top end and swimming all the way down past the Gantry. They saw all sorts of marine life, including Grey Nurse Sharks in the Back Gutter as well as Leopard Sharks and all sorts of rays.

First up for MegaWild and its divers, everyone descended at Buchanans Wall for a lovely swim up and down the wall. April Fools day and its jokes aside, Julz our dive master and her group saw the tale end of two Manta Rays swimming past Cable Trail! Pictures to come (but if they dont.. maybe it was a joke!!). Other marine life seen were Cuttlefish, Turtles, Nudibranchs, and Blue Tangs.

After a rainy surface inteval, we were already wet so we decided to get back in. We descended at Clenaer Station for a drift down to the Gantry. 6 Leopard Sharks were seen, all very friendly and curious around the Cleaner Station Mooring. Eagle Rays are still out and about in full swing, swimming everywhere along the boulder wall and showing off their beautiful white spots! Lots of bull rays were seen, along with plenty of Eastern Sting Rays. We can just say this dive was all about the sharks and rays!

Congratulations Jo, Ned, and Stewart for completing your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course!!
