Grey Nurse Sharks at Manta Arch

After a bumpy ride out, Manta Arch was decided for dive one hiding from a strong north west wind. Divers got amongst at least Thirty Grey Nurse Sharks in the Arch, also spotted were Wobbegong Sharks, Schooling Trevelly, and a couple of Black Cod.

We decided Split Solitary Island would be the best place for the second dive, after a quick surface interval all divers dropped in at Turtle Cove Mooring. Lots of marine life around in the shallows Painted Crays, a Crested Horn Shark, cousin to the Port Jackson Shark, a lonely Eagle ray,

Bull eyes, and a small Hawksbill Turtle was spotted.

Congratulations to Jason and Jake on completing their Padi Open Water Course Today.
