20th January 2019 – Blue Water Back In At South Solitary

1 year ago

Clear blue water and a jump in temperature greeted both Wildfin and 2 wild at South Solitary today. Our divers rolled in at the top end of the island, While 2 Wild’s divers busied themselves at Cleaner Station hunting Nudibranchs for the inaugural Sea Slug Census. Wildfin unloaded at Shark gutters where the divers found a Shovel-Nose Ray, Grey Nurse Sharks, Barney the Loggerhead, along with our resident Anglerfish.

After the surface interval the boats switched dive sites and along with huge numbers of Nudibranchs, the waters spoiled us with turtles, Wobbegongs, Bullrays and Eagle Rays.

Feature image today is an unusual Nudibranch taken by Nathan, one of the many seen today. Congratulations to Brendan and Maddison on completing their PADI Open Water Course.
