Gorgonian Coral at South Solitary Island with Diver Debbie by Jetty Dive

After a quick trip out to the South Solitary the top end of the island was the pick for dive one. Heaps of marine life around, half a dozen Grey Nurse Sharks were spotted, Bullrays, Schooling Tarwhine, Bull eyes and a lonely Hawksbill Turtle.

For Padi Women’s Day, Deb made a Potato Cake it was Gorgeous, after morning tea It was decided Dive two would be a drift dive from Shark Gutters to the Gantry, North Boulder Wall had more Grey Nurse Sharks hanging around, Black Cod were spotted, Eagle rays, more Turtles, and a Giant Cuttlefish were the highlights of dive two.
